Cemre shipyard cut the first steel plates for Scandlines’ new zero-emission ferry at its yard in Turkey on 4 April 2022.

The vessel will be 147.4 metres long and accommodate 140 passengers and 66 cargo units. It will be able to carry vehicles on both its upper and lower decks.

The ferry will operate on the route between Puttgarden in Germany and Rødby in Denmark.

“We have spent the last months getting agreements with subcontractors in place,” said Michael Guldmann Petersen, COO of Scandlines. “Monday this week, the first piece of steel for our new ferry was cut and the project is now noticeably underway. Ahead lies an incredibly exciting process with several milestones.”
