Following an order for three hybrid StoRo ultra large green vessels at Jinling Shipyard in 2018, Finnlines has recently signed an order for two RoPax vessels from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard.

The Superstar RoPax vessels will be larger than the existing Star class vessels and will be Finnlines’ flagships both in terms of size and technology. With a length of about 230m, their loading capacity will be 5,100 lane metres for rolling freight and around 1,100 passengers.

The vessels, expected to be delivered by 2023, will have the highest Finnish/Swedish ice class and will be built to a high technical and environmental specification. They will also be designed with a focus on fast and efficient cargo handling to guarantee customers a short turnaround time.

“We want to provide a high-quality service to our customers respecting all aspects of the environmental matters,” explained Emanuele Grimaldi, chief executive of Finnlines. “This investment aims at energy efficiency and emission reduction, but at the same time, it is an investment for the highest passenger comfort. We want to lead the development of high-quality RoRo and RoPax services in the Baltic Sea region,” he added.
