The new ferry concept is expected to be completed in early 2023
Marine architecture firm Deltamarin is to develop a new concept for a ferry travelling between Estonia’s mainland and islands, after signing a contract with the Estonian Transport Administration.
“During the tender, we saw great interest in cooperation from leading experienced design agencies in Estonia as well as abroad in this phase of the project,” said Valentin Bratkov, head of the ship construction project at the Estonian Transport Administration. “We believe that our cooperation with Deltamarin will be competent and diverse.”
The Estonian Transport Administration is the governmental agency responsible for planning the mobility of people and water, air and land vehicles, and ensuring safe and environmentally sustainable infrastructure.
“Winning the bid, after thorough procurement process, proves that Deltamarin’s expertise in engineering projects is highly valuated by the client,” says Janne Uotila, managing director at Deltamarin. “Deltamarin’s project team members are excited to start executing this project together with our client, ensuring that the Estonian Transport Administration will get an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly ferry design.”
The concept is expected to be completed in early 2023. That concept will be the basis for preparing a public procurement and further designing and constructing the ferry.
