The RoPax ferry will have a cargo capacity of 2,800 lane metres, and an additional dedicated car deck for 300 cars. It will be equipped with 435 passenger cabins, with a total capacity of 1,900 passengers and crew.

The contract includes supply and integration of the electrical, telecom and integrated control systems, project management, interface management and engineering services at all stages. Cables, installation and installation materials for the above systems are also included.

The scope of technology supply includes automation, propulsion control, navigation systems and radio/satellite communications, and other related systems. The engineering and construction phase is estimated to be two years.

“This is our first contract in Germany for a full EPCI scope. As a major shipbuilding nation, Germany is seen as a strategic area for Kongsberg Maritime as we turn our focus to new markets.”{/mprestriction}
