The Danish shipping company has contracted for DKK2.5b (€340m) the Chinese Guangzhou Shipyard to construct two ferries to be deployed across the Baltic.
Once completed in Q1 and Q3 2021, each of the 230 m long and 31 m wide ro-pax will add 4.5k lane metres of cargo capacity and room for 600 passengers to DFDS' network in the Baltic.
"We are intending to put these vessels either on the Karlshamn-Klaipeda or the Kiel-Klaipeda service. However, there're three years left before their commissioning so it's difficult to say already today where they'll be placed," Lars Malmström, Head of DFDS Shipping in Karlshamn, commented.
