Havila Capella christened in Fosnavåg

The coastal cruise ship Havila Capella was christened outside Havila Voyages’ head office at Mjølstadneset in Fosnavåg, Norway.

Just under a year after the ship was put into operation along the historic coastal route between Bergen and Kirkenes, Havila Capella was officially christened in Fosnavåg on Tuesday. The ship’s godmother is Hege Sævik Rabben, board member of Havila Voyages and she christened the ship in clean water taken from Geiranger.

Havila Capella is the most environmentally friendly ship on the coastal route, with its hybrid operation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and the world’s largest battery pack on a passenger ship. Earlier this year, Havila Capella also received the “Next Generation Ship Award” during the Nor-Shipping fair outside Oslo.

The characteristics of Havila Capella make her a guiding star along the coast, like her sister ships. We have already sailed the world heritage in the Geirangerfjord emission-free, four years before the authorities’ requirements, and have ships that have been built to meet the future requirements and opportunities for completely emission-free sailings. It is therefore fitting that Havila Capella is named after a guiding star.says managing director Bent Martini.
