Smyril Line har bestilt 2 RoRo færger hos det kinesiske værft CIMC Raffles Shipyard. De to færger skal leveres i 2026, med en længde på 190 meter, og kan medtage 3.300 lanemeter fragt.
“Now is the time to set ourselves new and bigger goals towards reducing emissions in the North Atlantic. The company’s main goal is to ensure safe and reliable transportation of both passengers and cargo, and to connect the periphery of the North Atlantic with the rest of the world. With the new ships, we emphasize futureproofing and leading the company towards a greener energy solution and lead the way for Smyril Line towards the goals for decarbonization in our fleet renewal, supporting the green transition of the shipping industry.”
Jens Meinhard Rasmussen, CEO of Smyril Line.
De to RoRo færger vil blive forberedt til, at kunne sejle på e-metanol.
