On Tuesday 11 June, the Swedish Transport Administration (STA), named their latest car ferry TELLUS during the name giving ceremony in Gothenburg.

Name giving ceremony for hybrid-ferry TELLUS

This is the third one in this series of ferries, and the big difference from the other two named SATURNUS & NEPTUNUS (shown on the picture) is that this one is with hybrid propulsion.

The ferry is 100×18 m and have room for 80 cars and 297 passengers and is built by the shipyard Baltic Workboats AS in Estonia.

She will serve on the ferry-route Gullmarsleden, located between Uddevalla & Lysekil.

FKAB Marine design has designed the vessel concept and made both the procurement documentation for STA and the building documentation for the yard.
