MS Roald Amundsen

Named after the Norwegian polar explorer, Roald Amundsen who was the first person to reach the South Pole. Like its namesake, the MS Roald Amundson is a pioneer in Polar expedition voyages. The ship is one of the first to feature a hybrid propulsion system that will not only reduce its fuel consumption but will show that large hybrid ships are possible. The Roald Amundsen will be joined by its sister ship the MS Fridtjof Nansen in 2019. 

The ships hybrid-technology and other efficiency improvements will reduce the fuel consumption by approximately 20% and CO2 emissions from the ships by 20%. This amounts to more than 3000 metric tons of CO2 per year.
