    A rather serious situation has been unfolding over the last several days in southeastern Norway after a fire was reported on a battery-powered passenger vessel.

    The MS Brim is a 2019-built all-electric excursion catamaran offering excursion tours in Norwegian fjords. The vessel features two battery rooms with 790kWh of batteries installed and supplied by Corvus Energy, the leading supplier of lithium power technology and energy storage systems to the maritime industry.

    A fire alarm on board the vessel was first reported on Thursday afternoon as the vessel was located in the Oslofjord near Fredrikstad, Norway.

    Following the incident, four crew were evacuated and the ferry was towed to nearby Vallø.
