The Utsira boat: In 2023, Kolumbus conducted a competition for ferry transport between Haugesund and Utsira in accordance with the procurement regulations, reports Haugesund’s newspaper.

Norled was awarded the contract, but Boreal received a temporary injunction from the Sør-Rogaland District Court, which granted them the right.

Kolumbus is now canceling the competition due to a lack of valid offers and legal uncertainty, writes the newspaper.

Director Edith Nøkling confirms the decision to the newspaper and informs that a new competition will be announced, while passengers are assured that this will not affect the offer on the Utsira connection.
