Germany's Flensburger Schiffbau Gesellschaft (FSG) reports that it has received an order from a Canadian customer for what, says the shipbuilder, will be one of the world's most environmentally friendly and innovative ConRo ferries.
The 210 m long ship will have a deadweight capacity of 19,000 tons, which is unusually high for ships of this type. It will feature a flexible layout of ramps and deck heights enabling the carriage of containers of various sizes, trucks, trailers and passenger autos. It will offer 1,700 lane m and space for 540 cars and 940 containers. The ship will feature a stern ramp, side ramps and fixed and suspended car decks. Antipollution measures will include an exhaust gas scrubber.
