€120 million LNG/biogas ferry to be constructed

Finland-based shipbuilding firm Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) has signed a letter of intent to build a car and passenger ferry which will predominantly use liquefied natural gas (LNG) through its operation course between Vassa, Finland and Umeå, Sweden.

The vessel order is approximated to be valued at €120 million.

“RMC won the public international tender thanks to our expert knowledge and technology,” said Jyrki Heinimaa, RMC CEO.

“RMC specialises in the design and construction of car and passenger ferries. We are therefore both pleased and proud to have showcased our competence in this area. We are also very grateful for the confidence that the customer has shown in RMC, having commissioned this ferry from us.”

The ferry will have machinery operating on a dual fuel and battery solution, with the main source of fuel being LNG. The ferry will also use biogas produced in Vassa.
