Scandlines, STX Finland Sign Letter of Intent

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Scandlines and STX Finland Oy have today signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for building two new ferries for the route Rostock (Germany) – Gedser (Denmark) for delivery in spring 2015. The project will bring some 1000 man-years of work for STX Finland and its subcontracting network.

The ferries will be double ended and construction will allow the ferries to be used on the route Puttgarden (Germany) - Rødby (Denmark) as well. Each ferry will have a capacity of 1,300 passengers and 72 trucks or 382 cars. The ferries will be operating on environmentally friendly LNG instead of traditional heavy fuel, thus reducing emissions to the air significantly. Nitrogen emissions, CO2 and particulates are reduced remarkably and sulphur emissions are practically zero.

Over the summer, Scandlines and STX Finland Oy will undertake negotiations under the LOI in order to reach a final contract.
