Tuesday, December 07, 1999
Aker Finnyards' newbuilding No. 425, the 11,500-dwt RoRo carrier for the Dutch company Bore Stream BV was recently christened Norstream by Ann von Rettig. P&O North Sea Ferries will operate the vessel, which began regular service between Continental Europe and the U.K. on the Zeebrugge-Tessport route in October. The vessel is designed mainly for transporting trailers, trucks and containers providing fast unloading and loading, and is also equipped with two stern ramps. Measuring 591 ft. (180 m), with a beam of 83 ft. (25.2 m) and draft of 21 ft. (6.5 m), the vessel moves at a speed of 20 knots powered by two medium-speed diesel engines at 18,900 kW. Norstream's sistership Norsky was delivered to the Bore Company this past June.
