Møregruppen 4 Introduction Why a new ferry service from mid Norway ? The most important export area in Norway No international ferry service to/from this region today Lack of a relevant RoRo transport/tourist corridor to UK and the western parts of Europe Time and cost savings with a direct sealink from Mid-Norway to UK/continent Norwegian tourist market with the highest consumption per capita in Europe (tax-free, high income etc)

Møregruppen 13 Estimated total cargo potential Corrected for process industrial cargo, we estimate the total general cargo share to be 5 mill. tons/year for the whole region. Example; 2 freq. per week 104 round trips/year 10.000 freight units/year Export 8.000 units (80 %) gives 77 units per trip Import 2.000 units (20 %) gives 19 units per trip Based on a potential of 5 mill tons, we need 3,2 % of the yearly volum to fill up the vessel.
Møregruppen 14 Cargo – Oil & Gas In addition to the general cargo Mid- Norway and the oilfield base Vestbase handle yearly all supplies to/from the oilfields outside Krisiansund and Norskehavet The link between mid-Norway and Aberdeen/Scotland are to day weekly served by SC Aberdeen.
