German ferry operator TT-Line has signed a construction contract with the Chinese shipyard Jiangsu Jinling for the construction of an LNG-powered RoPax ferry. 

The company said the planned delivery for the newbuild is 2022 with an option to add another vessel to the order.

The vessel is intended to be used within TT-Line’s route network in the Baltic Sea.

It will have a length of 230 meters and a breadth of 31 meters, featuring dual-fuel engines that can be powered by liquefied natural gas.

Speaking of the vessel TT-Line’s managing director Bernhard Termühlen said it “will be the most environmentally friendly RoPAx ship” in its trading area.

The new TT-Line vessel will be built on the Green Ship concept of the company and is designed to carry 800 passengers and more than 200 trucks and trailers.
