SMC has been rewarded provision of technical consultancy, plan approval and site supervision services for two LNG dual-fuel ropax newbuildings by TT-Line, Germany. Construction will be carried out at China’s Jingling Shipyard.
The ferries are designed with capability of LNG and diesel dual-fuel propulsion, with capacity of 866 passengers and more than 2,400-lane meter. After delivery, they are intended to replace the company’s oldest two ferries – Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, operating in the Baltic Sea.
Currently, plan approval is under review, with on-site construction expected to start by end of 2019.
