Trade press release

MacGREGOR RoRo systems benefit two series of PCTCs built in China

5/26/2004

The world's largest-capacity RoPaxes employ MacGREGOR RoRo systems

Three RoPax ferries on order in Italy, each offering 4.2km of freight lanes, will benefit from MacGREGOR RoRo systems


In February Finnlines ordered three 42,000gt cargo/passenger RoPax ferries from Fincantieri, and agreed an option for two more sisterships. The first three will be employed to connect Helsinki and Travemunde.

Fincantieri has designed these 9,300 dwt ferries to carry 300 trucks in 4,200 linear metres. The Italian shipbuilder says these are record figures for this type of ship, and that these will be the biggest RoPax vessels ever built. Up to 500 passengers can be carried, and there are 225 deluxe cabins.

MacGREGOR comprehensive RoRo access equipment package includes a series of external and internal ramps, ramp covers, bow doors, hoistable decks, and shell doors. Delivery of the equipment is scheduled for the first half of 2005, with the ships earmarked for delivery in November 2005, May 2006 and June 2006 respectively.
