Complex Ferry Conversion


Complex Ferry Conversion

Earlier this year Remontowa Shipyard (Gdansk, Poland) concluded the contract for a complex conversion of the rail ferry "Oresund". Remontowa competed for this conversion against renowned European shipyards, however, good knowledge of the Scandinavian market as well as excellent references from other conversions helped to secure this contract. "Oresund", built over 20 years ago in Norway, will be transformed into the passenger-car-rail ferry for operation on the Stockholm Turku route.

A new superstructure with cabins for 364 passengers and the upper car deck will be built and the shape of the aft part of the ship will be modified. These major changes will result in the ferry extension by 4 meters in length and adding/renewing more than 1000 tons of steel. In addition, three new ramps and two new cargo winches will be installed. The ship's systems will also be modernized, with most modifications planned for piping, electrical and hydraulic systems. New safety system, complying with the latest international conventions, will be implemented.
