Green expeditions with Hurtigruten

We are happy to announce a collaboration with Norwegian adventure travel operator Hurtigruten Expeditions, to electrify the first ‘ship to shore’ and wildlife-spotting tender boats. The tenders, custom-built for Hurtigruten’s expedition cruising, are the first of its kind with sufficient range to deliver excursions in some of the most remote places in the world.

Announced by Hurtigruten Group as part of their 2022 annual Environmental Social and Governance Report (ESG) released yesterday, the new innovative tender boats are designed for excursions from expedition ships in Arctic and Antarctic waters, and in all regions in-between the poles.

The electric tenders can carry up to 20 guests, along with scientific & safety-related equipment, for use on landings and carefully planned day-trips that enable guests to experience destinations in an intimate and sustainable way.

Norwegian coastal cruises set to benefit first

We set the industry standard with our pioneering inboard and outboard electric motor systems, offering unparalleled flexibility, ease of use, and power output. As battery technology continues to advance, our motors are becoming increasingly efficient, enabling boats to sail longer distances with ease. 

Hurtigruten Expeditions will introduce the first electric tender boats on expedition cruises with MS Otto Sverdrup along the Norwegian coast this season. 

"We are very proud to be the first commercial expedition cruise fleet to offer this ground-breaking technology enabling silent and emission-free excursions with minimal disturbance to local wildlife. It is an innovation collaboration based on our aligned commitment to safety and sustainability"
