As may have been noted here in my absents the hybrid Polar Expedition Cruise ship Roald Amundsen has finally been delivered:
The naming ceremony will be held when she reach Antarctica for the first time later this year:
Kleven shipyard had a bit of problems with this one, being very complex and with a lot of new and innovative technology, so she got nearly a year late from the yard, but they are very proud of the ship they have delivered.
The second one, the Fridjof Nansen, is expected to be an easier task. She is due to be delivered later this year. A third ship of this class is likely to be built in 2021.
Have a look around the ship, with a very enthusiastic American crew member as a guide:
Unfortunately this does not include anything particularly nautical. I’ll see if I can find more on the hybrid machinery and the bridge.
