Five Fjord1 contracts awarded from Norwegian Electric Systems

This will be the company’s biggest projects so far.

Clean Marine Switchboards are grateful to announce the winning of five major contracts, constructing all main AC & DC switchboards according to Norwegian Electric Systems’ specifications and design. We are proud and humbled by the confidence placed in us, and we are taking measures to further strengthen our production and team. CEO of Clean Marine Switchboards, Erlend Langstrand, gives the following statement:

“We look forward to working on these projects in every way. They all represent opportunities for us to show how good our solutions are. Receiving the contracts on the two ferries that will operate on the Fjord1 route Brekstad – Valset from January 2019 was very special to us. Since we are located in the heart of Brekstad, this will give us a unique opportunity to work really close with the project,  and hopefully create the most innovative electric system yet.

The contracts for the three ferries that will operate on the Fjord1 route Hareid – Sulesund is probably the most complex and technically demanding fully electric ferry distance in Norway. The fact that NES places these highly advanced orders with CMSw confirms yet again that we are an innovative and trusted partner with highly skilled staff.

The experience and expertise we get from these projects will give us insight and strengthen CMSw for the future. We have already started the process of recruiting additional staff, and we are looking forward to a very bright partnership with Norwegian Electric Systems”
