MHI to Build Passenger Ferry


Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. has won an order for a passenger ferry of 20,000 gross tons from Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co. of the U.K. The firm has also acquired the right to additional orders for two ferries of the same type. The euro-denominated order is the equivalent of some 50 million dollars.
The vessel, measuring 156.2m long and 23.4 m wide, will be constructed at the Shimonoseki Shipyard & Machinery Works in Yamaguchi Prefecture and handed over to the British company at the end of June 2000. The ferry, with capacity for 400 passengers and 370 cars, will replace one currently in service between Cairn Ryan in Scotland and Larne in Northern Ireland. It will have top speed of 22.6 knots.
