Barents Nord AS takes delivery of Nefelin V

Brødrene Aa is pleased to announce the delivery of hull nr 272, Nefelin V. 

Nefelin V left the yard in Hyen today, heading for the city of Alta where it will be operating. The 26m carbon fibre multipurpose catamaran will be transporting commuters and equipment to the Sebelco Nordic mine at Stjernøya. 

The new build has a total length of 26,3 meter. It is powered by a pair of MAN D 2842 engines coupled to a propulsion system from Servogear. The salon accomodates 80 passengers and is equipped with cruise executive seats from West Mekan. It is built according to standards of universal design with great focus on passenger comfort.  The vessel features a Palfinger crane for cargo handling.

Nefelin V will replace the 34 year old monohull, Nefelin IV. The new build has more or less the same capacities as its predecessor, but is reported to cut fuel consumptions by 50% according to operators representatives.
