Second of four RoRo ferries launched for Seatruck

Newbuildings are on schedule - first delivery in November

Flensburg - The building program of Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft is on schedule: only about two months after the launching of the "Seatruck Progress", today yard no. 747 "Seatruck Power" was named and launched into the waters of the Flensburg fjord. She will be followed by two further identical sister vessels, as the total order of the English shipping company Seatruck Ferries Ltd. comprises four ships.

The four sister ships will be delivered by Flensburg to their owner between November this year and June 2012 and are intended mainly for service in the Irish Sea. The ships are 142 metres long and 25 metres wide. Each boasts a freighting capacity of 2,166 lane metres on four decks and can also carry up to 151 trailers.

These four vessels from Flensburg are the most modern and eff icient in the Seatruck fleet. They will in future also be the biggest ships to operate out of the northwest English port of Heysham. It was the size of this port that determined the length of the newbuildings - maximum 142 metres allowing for the greatest possible load and optimal manoeuverability in a port with only limited available space. That's also why the deckhouse is located forward - to guarantee unhampered loading of the upper decks.

Current orders ensure work at the yard up to and into 2013. Apart from the four RoRo freight ferries for Seatruck Ferries, the yard is building another three freight ferries for Ulusoy Sealines in Turkey. Further projects, which will secure work for the more than 700 shipbuilders at the Flensburg shipyard, are currently in the planning stage.
