RoPax ferry will be largest aluminum ship built in China

Incat Crowther is designing a 1,000 passenger high speed RoPax ferry for operation between mainland China and Taiwan.

When in operation, the 113 m x 30.5 m catamaran will be the largest aluminum vessel built in China.

To be built by China’s Afai Southern Shipyard, the Incat Crowther 113 design ferry will be operated by Fujian Strait Shipping Co (CSF) between Pingtan Island and the Taiwanese cities of Taichung, Taipei and Kaohsiung.

The ferry will have two vehicle decks, capable of carrying 230 cars or 42 containers.

The resiliently mounted passenger cabin will have seating for 1,000 in a mix of economy and business class. Amenities will include a duty-free store, café and mahjong room.

The vessel will be powered by four MTU 20V8000 M71L main engines, each producing 9,100 kW @ 1150rpm. Propulsion will be by four Rolls Royce water jets, with power transmission via ZF gearboxes.

Auxiliary power will be provided by Caterpillar gensets. Ir more information contact [email protected]
