Australia’s TT-Line Company and Germany’s Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) have signed a contract for the design and construction of two new liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered passenger ferries.

The deal for the Roll-on/Roll-off (RoRo) ships follows a letter of intent signed by the two companies in January this year.

The order is worth about 438 million euros ($524.1m) for both vessels, according to a FSG statement.

The two new ships for TT-Line Company Tasmania would be 212 metres long and able to carry 1,800 passengers and up to 600 passenger vehicles.

Both ships will be completed in 2021 to begin operations on Bass Strait.

The new Spirits of Tasmania are specially developed for use in the rough seas of Bass Strait and feature the latest technology for eco-efficiency, the statement said.
