This is an ambitious initiative, partly funded by the Norwegian government in Norway, aimed at the emission-free movement of goods across the Oslo fjords.

Following the commissioning of autonomous equipment and field trials in Norway, the vessel will serve as an ASKO fully autonomous ferry capable of carrying 16 fully loaded EU standard trailers across the fjords in one go.

Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL), the country's largest shipbuilding and maintenance facility, is building two zero-carbon, autonomous electric vessels for a Norwegian group.

The construction of the vessels began on Wednesday with a plate-cutting ceremony virtually organized here at the CSL, a CSL statement said. The two vessels for ASKO Maritime AS, Norway, are being constructed.
