Crist to deliver a ro-pax for Iceland
Publication date: 2017-01-26
The Gdynia-based shipyard will build a brand-new ferry for the Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration (Vegagerðin).
The 69.4 m long and 15.0 m wide NB 70 project, manned by a ten person crew, and powered by a hybrid diesel-electric engine will be able to take on-board 390 passengers in winter, and - because of the outer terrace - 540 travellers during the summer season.
Once deployed (the investment is planned to be realized in June 2018), the new ferry will operate between the Landeyjahöfn and Vestmannaeyjar islands in the Westman archipelago, located in the south of Iceland.
The Norwegian Polarkonsult was responsible for the conceptual design, while classification and the work draft project were prepared by StoGda Ship & Engineering.
"NB 70 will be also adapted to occasional departure to other further ports. That is why the project and its realization are highly specialized," Radosław Pallach, Project Manager at Crist, said.
