Hurtigruten Expeditions adds third hybrid ship

Thursday, Aug 25, 2022 0

Hurtigruten Expeditions has introduced its third battery-hybrid powered ship to its fleet.

MS Otto Sverdrup departed on her maiden voyage out of Hamburg this week on the first year-round expedition cruises from Germany.

It marks the return of expedition cruises after more than a year of pandemic pause.

“We are thrilled to finally be back exploring with our guests. This is a day we have all been really looking forward to after a very challenging year,” said Hurtigruten Expeditions CEO Asta Lassesen.

Equipped with battery packs and other green technology, MS Otto Sverdrup will operate year-round expedition cruises from Hamburg to the Norwegian coast.

It is Hurtigruten Expeditions; third hybrid vessel after MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof.

After a complete upgrade and transfer to Hurtigruten Expeditions, MS Otto Sverdrup’s maiden voyage from Germany is the first sailing in the step-by-step restart of operations.

In late September, MS Maud will start the first ever year-round UK-based expedition cruises.

Hurtigruten Expeditions 2022/2023 winter program also includes Antarctica, West Africa, Alaska, and from January 2022, the Galapagos Islands.

Hurtigruten Expeditions recently announced its first ever cruises to West Africa, including Bissagos Islands and Cape Verde.
