The completion of the new Scandlines ferry M/V Berlin, which will be inserted on the ferry route between Rostock (Germany) and Gedser (Denmark), is in its stage in the Danish yard FAYARD. However, the comprehensive test programme drags on.

The delay is partly due to a damaged main switchboard, just as the Christmas holidays are also a contributing factor.
The work in the engine room has been completed, and all tests have been satisfactory. The same applies to the new bridge. Also the two car decks are ready for use.
The cable work was completed mid-December, while the interior will be completed during the next couple of weeks.
A final date for deployment has not yet been set.
