Ferry design contract
Naval architects Deltamarin has signed a contract with Rauma Marine Constructions Oy (RMC) for the design of a car passenger ferry for Kvarken Link AB, a Finnish-Swedish consortium.
Deltamarin’s commission covers basic and detail design services for all hull and machinery areas. The value of the contract with RMC is about €4M. The work will be carried out over a period of 13-14 months at Deltamarin’s offices in Finland and Poland with the assistance of network companies.
“In shipbuilding at Rauma, we have a long co-operative relationship with Deltamarin and it is important to continue this spirit of collaboration into the future,” says CEO of RMC Jyrki Heinimaa.
The ferry will have a freight capacity of 1,500 lane-metres for trucks on two cargo decks and she will accommodate 800 passengers. She is designed to have a low environmental impact, with machinery running on a dual fuel and battery solution. The main source of fuel is liquefied natural gas (LNG). The vessel will also be able to utilise liquefied biogas (LBG).
The ferry is planned to be delivered in 2021.
