TT-Line Company Pty Ltd and FSG sign contract for two LNG passenger ferries

The order has a total volume of approximately 438 million euros for both vessels.

The two new ships for TT-Line Company Tasmania (see also CruiseMapper) will be 212 metres long and can carry 1,800 passengers and up to 600 passenger vehicles. They are powered by LNG, which is particularly low-emission and environmentally friendly. Both ships will be completed in 2021 to begin operations on Bass Strait.

“We are very pleased that we were selected by the TT-Line Supervisory Board in competition against a number of international shipyards to design and build the new Spirits of Tasmania. The two ships are specially developed for use in the rough seas of Bass Strait and feature the latest technology for eco-efficiency,” says Rüdiger Fuchs, CEO of FSG.
