On Tuesday, 13 December 2011, STX Finland Oy's Rauma Shipyard started a production of a Double Ended newbuilding no. 1380 for Finferries. The vessel will be delivered at the end of 2012. Construction of the 65-metre ferry will bring 100 man-years of labour to STX Rauma shipyard per-sonnel and the personnel of its supplier network.

 

The start of the production was attended by representatives of Finferries, STX Finland, the classification society Det Norske Veritas, and members of the press. The double ended and environmentally friendly passenger ferry will operate in Turku Archipelago, Finland, on the Korpo - Houtskär route, the length and challenging ice conditions of which will set special requirements to the performance of the vessel. Particular attention has been given to the efficiency and safety of the ferry that will enter traffic at the beginning of 2013.

 

"The engineering and procurement processes at the STX Rauma Shipyard have advanced exactly as planned. The construction process will proceed rapidly and the keel of the ferry will be laid in spring 2012," explains Timo Suistio, Director of STX Rauma shipyard.
