The company has signed a contract with the China Merchants Jinling shipyard (CMJL) for the approval and detail design of Finnlines' brand-new hybrid ferries.
Deltamarin has already provided CMJL with consultancy and contract design services on the project.
"We at Deltamarin are extremely happy and thankful to get this contract during this very abnormal global business environment caused by COVID-19. This proves that Deltamarin's expertise in the ro-pax segment is highly valued from the client side," Janne Uotila, Managing Director, Deltamarin, commented.
He also said, "These new ro-pax vessels will be among the most environmentally friendly vessels of their type. Finnlines is at the forefront when it comes to sustainable shipping operations that also perfectly fit the values of our company."
Once delivered in 2023, the 235 m-long and 33 m-wide Superstars (5,100 lane metres of cargo capacity and room for up to 1,200 passengers), each worth approx. $135m, will serve the Naantali-Långnäs-Kapellskär crossing.
