Deltamarin Ltd is to provide the Finnish Rauma Marine Constructions Oy shipyard with design services for a ro-pax vessel to be built for the Danish Mols-Linien A/S. Deltamarin’s scope of work includes basic and detail design of the hull outfitting, machinery and cargo areas.
The new 158-metre ro-pax vessel will be designed and optimised to carry passengers and cargo between the Danish islands of Bornholm and Sjaelland. The cargo capacity will be 1,500 lane metres. Construction will start in spring 2017 and the vessel will enter service in autumn 2018. Deltamarin has previously developed technical outline material for Mols-Linien for the purpose of yard tendering.
“This ship contract is very important for Rauma Marine Constructions. We are proud to have a major role in this project, and to assist the shipyard in building up the new future of shipbuilding in Rauma. Mols-Linien’s order is a proof of the strong passenger vessel know-how in Finland,” says Janne Uotila, Director, Engineering Management at Deltamarin.
The total contract value of Deltamarin’s design work is about €3M. The work will be carried out at Deltamarin’s offices in Finland and Poland over an estimated period of 12 months.
