Algeria Confirms Ferry Order

Friday, January 18, 2002
Algerian state-owned shipowner ENTMV (Enterprise Nationale de Transports Maritimes de Voyageurs) has placed an order with IZAR to build two ro-ro passenger ferries. Instead of initial plans for splitting the order between IZAR and its former subsidiary H.J. Barreras, both vessels will be built by IZAR at its Seville yard. The first vessel is scheduled for delivery on January 2004 and the second, four months later. ENTMV will operate the ships between Algiers and Marseilles, with a call on the way at Alicante. Each vessel will accommodate up to 1,300 passengers and up to 130 crew, with a 1,350 lineal meter lane equivalent to 300 cars or 42 lorries.

There will be 132 first class cabins plus 77 tourist class cabins, plus 85 crew cabins. Passenger public spaces will total 4,900 sq m. Dimensions will be 145.00m length (130.00m length b.p.), 24.00m breadth, 8.55m depth to main deck, a design draught of 6.00m and a deadweight of 2,900t. Two main engines, each of 12,600kW, will be installed for a foreseen speed of 22 knots. These vessels will be fully automatized, with a control system simultaneously monitoring 1,200 stations and will be supplied with a 24-hour ³unattended engine room²
