Spanish ferry operator Trasmapi has added new fast ferry Migjorn Jet to its fleet. The catamaran will operate a route between the Spanish islands of Ibiza and Formentera.

Migjorn Jet was built in a joint effort between shipyard Rodman Polyships, marine architects Rvelasco, consultancy firm D3 Applied, Lloyd’s Register and the Trasmapi fleet department. She is 29 metres long, with capacity for 329 passengers and crew.

The new ferry has undergone a series of changes compared to its predecessors, including a newly designed bow. The internal structure was designed using global finite analysis to reduce the weight of the ship, which has cut energy and fuel consumption by 10 per cent, as well as lowering noise levels. She also features two Mitsubishi S12R-T2MPTK engines and an exhaust system designed by Progener Power Systems to reduce smoke and noise emissions.

The vessel also includes several features intended to reduce the spread of pathogens onboard, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. High-efficiency filters have been installed in the air circulation ducts, while UV radiation lamps have been fitted to sterilise the air and ensure it is free of pathogens.
