Five newbuilds for Royal Arctic Line to replace P&S order
Royal Arctic Line has signed a contract for the construction of five new cargo ships to be built at Polish shipyard Remontowa in Gdansk.
Industry website Maritime Denmark says that the five ships will be delivered to the Greenland and Denmark based operator in the first half of 2015. The order replaces a broadly similar five-vessel contract with the bankrupt P&S Werften in Germany. The original contract was closely reviewed, and the new order encompasses:
A 606teu sister ship to the Mary Arctica, replacing Arina Arctica, to be used on trans-Atlantic routes as well as acting as a feeder ship in Greenland and for special duties on the East Coast, Thule Air Base and in Antarctica;
Two 100teu ships to replace Pajuttaat on annual charter, mainly engaged in supply functions in Northern Greenland; and
- Two smaller 30teu ships to replace older vessels on year-round supply service.
Royal Arctic Line is an existing customer of Remontowa, which partly built Mary Arctica eight years ago, and was involved in the extension of Sarfaq Ittuk.
