DFDS Orders New Ferries for Baltic Routes

DFDS have signed a contract with Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) in China for two new ro-pax ships to operate on Baltic routes in 2021.

Continuing to modernise and increase the number of vessels available, DFDS will be adding the new ferries to their Klaipeda <> Kiel and Klaipeda <> Karlshamn crossings.

The two, 230 metres long ro-pax ships will each have a capacity of 4,500 lane metres and around 600 passengers.

"The two ships represent a total investment of about DKK 1.75 billion and will be another welcome addition to our newbuilding programme that already counts four large ro-ro vessels, of which the first is expected to join our network in one year’s time.

The large cargo capacity will enable us to support our customers’ future growth in the Baltic region"

says Peder Gellert, EVP and Head of the DFDS Shipping Division.

The new vessels will be equipped with the latest scrubber technology and adhere to the newest, environmental standards with the lowest possible fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
