Industry Database

Deltamarin Ltd has signed a contract with Chinese Guangzhou Shipyard International Co, Ltd (GSI) for consultancy and engineering services for two DFDS ro-pax ferries

Deltamarin will provide the yard with basic (approval) and detail design together with Safe Return to Port (SRtP) documentation. The contract covers all disciplines and all areas. The value of Deltamarin’s contract with GSI is about €5M. The work will be carried out at Deltamarin’s offices in Finland and China with the assistance of network companies from Europe over an estimated period of 13 months.

“This significant order supports Deltamarin’s strategy to further strengthen our position in the passenger vessel segment,” said Deltamarin’s Managing Director Janne Uotila.

Both ships are planned to be delivered in 2021. The ships will be built at GSI’s Nansha yard. Deltamarin earlier worked with GSI during the construction of the semi-submersible heavy lift vessel Xiang Yun Kou for Cosco Shipping.
