EU O.K.s Newbuildings At Schichau Seebeckwerft

Schichau Seebeckwerft reported that European Union authorities have given the green light for the construction of two RoRo ferries, and the yard has signed contracts. The ships were ordered by COTUNAV, the national Tunisian carrier, and will be built as hull numbers 1093 and 1094. Both are scheduled for delivery in 1997.

Meanwhile, in July the yard launched what is reported to be the largest combined rail/trailer/passenger ferry under construction for DFO (Deutsche Fahrgeselschaft Ostsee).

The 656-ft. (200-m) ferry is scheduled for delivery in December.

It is powered by four, 6,300-kW diesel engines driving two variable pitch propellers through two twin reduction gears.

Safety and performance is enhanced with an antiheeling system for loading and unloading, and all safety equipment is to the latest standards.
