TTS Marine AB agrees new contract with STX Finland
TTS has further strengthened its position as a top supplier of access equipment for RoRo and cruise vessels with the agreement of a new contract with STX Finland Turku Shipyard for the new environmental friendly passenger ferry for Viking Line.
The equipment supplied by TTS, scheduled for delivery and installation during 2012, will include a stern ramp/door, bow doors, a "folding frame" bow ramp, an internal ramp/cover, a hoistable car deck with ramps, cargo and provision lifts with covers and side shell doors, all with associated hydraulic and electric systems and with a total weight of more than 400 tonnes.
The cruise ferry, with an optional sister vessel, will be about 214 meters in length and will with a width of 31.8 meters have a gross tonnage of 57,000 tons. The LNG fuelled ship, which has a service speed of 22 knots, is planned to hold 2,800 passengers and will be full of innovative and new environment solutions, has 1,250 lane-meters for trucks and a separate car deck of about 500 lane-meters for passenger cars. Additional space for passenger cars can be found on the hoistable car decks. The cruise ferry will operate between Turku and Stockholm. The vessel is scheduled for delivery to the owner in January 2013.
The contract is built on the established presence of TTS in the Finnish shipbuilding industry. TTS is the supplier of cargo access equipment for the previous built Viking XPRS and all six of the newly built RoPax vessels for an Estonian owner also built at STX yards in Finland, as well as for several vessels built for numerous other owners.
"We have worked on many different projects with the Finnish yards, which now belong to the STX Group" says Björn Rosén, Vice President Sales & Projects for TTS Marine AB. "This new contract further enhances our cooperation and strengthens our relationship with the group".
