OSK-ShipTech signs deal with GSI for Gotland's LNG ferry

Danish OSK-ShipTech and Guangzhou  Shipyard International of China have signed a contract for continuation of design works for the new RoPax ferry recently contracted between GSI and Rederi AB Gotland.

The ferry will service the route between Nynäshamn and Visby, Gotland, and will be one of the world’s most powerful and fastest ferries to be powered by LNG.

The 200 meter long vessel will have a deadweight capacity of approximately 4,800 tonnes, room for about 1650 passengers and 1750 trailer lane meters. Despite the vessel having a 1200 ton larger displacement than Gotland’s existing two RoPax vessels MS Visby and MS Gotland – also build by GSI and delivered in 2003, the design team involved in the project has ensured significant reduction on fuel consumption.

Prior to the contract between GSI and Gotlands, OSK-ShipTech was assigned by Gotland to prepare contract designs and specifications. Now working for GSI, OSK-ShipTech will head the basic and detailed design process, primarily on exterior/interior designs, safety and environmental arrangements as well as general project coordination.

Powered by LNG and with an array of energy saving applications, the new ferry will provide an environmental and friendly addition to the existing fleet of Gotland including large savings on emission of CO2, NOx and SOx.
