Lloyd's Register announced that various vessels on order will be elected to Lloyd's Register class, namely two RoPax vessels for Anek Lines in Crete.
The 669 ft. (204 m) RoRo cargo/passenger ferries, sailing under the Greek flag at 31,000-gt will carry up to 1,500 passengers between Greece and Italy at a service speed of 27.5 knots.
Built at Bruce Mekaniske Verstad in Sweden, the hulls will then be subsequently towed to Fosen Mekaniske Verksteder, Norway for outfitting. With the first expected to be delivered in October 2000, four main engines will power each ferry, each with a rating of 12,600 kW, geared two controllable pitch propellers on two shafts.
