Finnish design, offshore engineering and construction company Deltamarin has partnered with shipbuilder Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) to provide basic and detail design services for Tallink’s new ferry, which will operate between Helsinki, Finland and Tallinn, Estonia.
Deltamarin’s commission covers design services for the hull, machinery and electrical systems. The work will be carried out over a period of 16 to 18 months at Deltamarin’s offices in Finland and Poland with the assistance of network companies.
“Naturally we are very happy and proud to participate in this ferry project and continue our strategic partnership with RMC,” said Janne Uotila, CEO of Deltamarin. “We look forward to further developing cooperation with the yard, providing them with excellent services.”
The Tallink shuttle ferry will accommodate 2,800 passengers and have 1,900 lane metres available for vehicles. The ferry will use LNG as its main fuel but will also be equipped with battery packs to further reduce emissions. It is expected to be delivered early in 2022.
“We are very pleased to continue our fruitful cooperation with Deltamarin,” said Jyrki Heinimaa, RMC’s CEO. “RMC’s aim is to be a leading car and passenger ferry provider, and our extensive network of strategic partners plays a vital role in achieving this. We look forward to working together with Deltamarin and providing Tallink with this state-of-the-art, modern and environmentally friendly vessel.”
