Fjord Line will no longer operate the ferry route between Sandefjord in Norway and Strömstad in Sweden, as the route does not support Fjord Line's vision and long-term strategy.
After a period out of service due to upgrades, the Fjord Line cruise ships MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord return to service between Bergen, Stavanger, Hirtshals and Kristiansand.
Since the beginning of 2020, Fjord Line has been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and energy crisis. We have continuously adjusted our operations to face these challenges, most recently through a reduced sailing schedule and the ongoing dual-fuel conversion of our LNG ships, MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord.
Fjord Line has decided to rebuild the two LNG-ships MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord from single-fuel LNG-engines to dual-fuel LNG/MGO-engines.
Fjord Line strives to take care of reducing energy consumption in a tight European energy market. The two exclusively powered by liquid natural gas (LNG) ships, MS Bergensfjord and MS Stavangerfjord, on the routes Hirtshals-Stavanger-Bergen and Hirtshals-Langesund will therefore have new route plans.
Fjord FSTR, Fjord Line’s new ultra-modern catamaran, will be christened on Friday at the cruise port in Kristiansand. The ship will be taking over the route between Hirtshals and Kristiansand from HSC Fjord Cat. It will be a traditional christening ceremony with a tour that can be followed digitally and that will made available to everyone.
The restrictions from the government, in light of the covid-19 pandemic, has hit Fjord Line hard. Owners, loaners and governments have helped secure future operations for the second time during the covid-19 pandemic for the ferry company Fjord Line. This ensures that Fjord Line can continue to build on the strong position Fjord Line had before the covid-19 pandemic.
The Board of Directors has appointed Brian Thorsted Hansen (53) as the new CEO of Fjord Line.
