TT-Line Company Pty Ltd and Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft have signed a contract for the design and construction of two new LNG passenger ferries.

The order has a total volume of approximately €438 million for both vessels.

The two new ships for TT-Line Company Tasmania will be 212 m long and can carry 1800 passengers and up to 600 passenger vehicles. They are powered by LNG, which is particularly low-emission and environmentally friendly. Both ships will be completed in 2021 to begin operations on Bass Strait.

“We are very pleased that we were selected by the TT-Line Supervisory Board in competition against a number of international shipyards to design and build the new Spirits of Tasmania. The two ships are specially developed for use in the rough seas of Bass Strait and feature the latest technology for eco-efficiency,” says Rüdiger Fuchs, CEO of FSG.
