PD Ports welcomes increased capacity on Teesport - Zeebrugge service

September 13 - P&O Ferries' brand new freight ferry, Bore Song which sailed into Teesport yesterday will significantly expand capacity on the service.

The Bore RoFlex class ship, chartered by P & O from the Finnish ferry company Bore Ltd, represents the latest generation of ro-ro vessels due to its flexible carrying capacity, fuel efficiency and reduced emissions of its engine.

The freight-only Bore Song, operating on the six times a week Teesport - Zeebrugge service since it sailed from the Belgian port yesterday, has significantly more carrying capacity than the Norstream, the ship it is replacing on the service.

"We are pleased that P&O Ferries is investing in this service as we are seeing growth in both accompanied and unaccompanied freight," says Bill McGowan, ferry terminal manager, PD Ports, which owns Teesport. "It shows that demand for the services we offer through Teesport continues to expand."

There are fixed decks and hoistable car decks which have the capacity to carry abnormal loads.

Andy Faichney, customer operations support manager, of P&O Ferries says: "The Bore Song is perfectly suited to our Teesport - Zeebrugge service operation and provides us with greater capacity and the flexibility to accept the complex mix of container and ro-ro traffic on this route with ease. We will continue to work closely with PD Ports to ensure our customers receive exactly the service they need."
