Remontowa Shipbuilding launch building no. B 613/1, the largest ferry of this kind built by the yard to date.

Remontowa Shipbuilding says it is the largest production shipyard in Poland, and the only one with extensive experience in the construction of ecological, gas powered ferries. During last five years they have built eight gas powered ferries to serve local car – passenger transportation on the Norwegian coast.

In contrast to previously delivered ferries fuelled by diesel or gas power, this one will be powered only by LNG and emergency CNG gas engines.

The hew ferry will be able to take on board 550 passengers and carry 165 cars. The passengers will be offered a comfortable lounge situated under car deck where two evacuation systems will be installed.

The vessels will be equipped with modern automation systems which allows a reduced number of crew. 
Construction is according to the project detailed by Norwegian design office LMG Marin and Remontowa Marine Design & Consulting under the supervision of classification society Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA).
