DFDS' second ro-ro named

June 12 - DFDS has named its second newbuild ro-ro freight vessel from Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) Tulipa Seaways.

The sistership to Gardenia Seaways, which was delivered in February, will be delivered in autumn and will enter service connecting Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Immingham, UK.

Following the naming, the vessel was launched from the construction berth into the water to be completed alongside the quay in Flensburg, Germany.

Both ro-ro vessels measure 210 m in length and can handle 262 trailers with a load space of 4,076 m, as well as meeting current environmental requirements.

DFDS will take on both vessels under a bareboat charter contract.

According to Niels Smedegaard, ceo of DFDS, freight volumes on its North Sea routes are continuing to grow, in spite of Brexit. He adds: "The two newbuildings represent the first step in an ambitious newbuilding programme that will add considerable capacity to our North Sea network over the next few years."
