New Fast Ferries for Greece


ALSTOM, through its subsidiary ALSTOM Leroux Naval, has just registered an order worth over 100 million euros to build two high speed ferries for the Greek company Nel Lines : a Corsaire 14000 and a Corsaire 10000.

The Corsaire 14000 is a 140 metre long ship, which has the capacity to carry 1800 passengers and 400 cars, at a speed of more than 40 knots. The Corsaire 10000, 103 metres long, can carry 800 passengers and 190 cars at a speed of 35 knots.

This order follows the one placed last year by the same ship-owner for a Corsaire 12000-type unit (120 metres, 1000 passengers, 210 cars, 36 knots). This ship is currently being built at ALSTOM's Lorient shipyard and is scheduled for delivery at the end of the first quarter 2000.

These high-technology mono-hull vessels are equipped with a high resistance steel hull and one of the most advanced stabilisation systems. They are designed to sail at high speed in the highest conditions of comfort and safety, and are particularly appropriate for the eastern Mediterranean seas which can occasionally be difficult. The delivery of these two new units will take place mid-2001.
