New RoRo and RoPax Vessels


Aker Yards Germany has recently introduced newly developed RoRo and RoPax vessels at the RoRo 2008 exhibition in Gothenburg (Sweden). Both new vessel types were developed following the design philosophy "Green - Efficient -Smart". This means special emphasis has been paid to create a small environmental footprint through very low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Furthermore efficient energy management, protected fuel tank arrangements without any contact with the outer shell of the hull, HFO service tanks for low sulphur HFO and an efficient ballast water management contribute to a superior environmental performance.

The type Aker RoRo 52 is a large short-sea RoRo vessel with 5,200 lane meters for trailers. With 14,400 t deadweight the ships are 220 m long and 30 m wide and will reach a service speed of 23 knots. The design can be tailored to various customer needs and has a modular machinery concept, a highly optimized hull design rendering very low fuel consumption and an effective ramp configuration for quick turnaround times.

The type Aker RoPax 40 is a large and fast short-sea overnight combined freight / passenger ferry with 4,000 lane meters for trailers and additional space for cars. With 11,000 t deadweight the ships will be 230.0 m long and 31.6 m wide and will reach the high service speed of up to 24 knots. They have a quick turnaround ramp configuration, a modular machinery concept, an optimized hull design as well as very low fuel consumption and are prepared for "safe return to port" regulations. The new design can accommodate up to 1,000 passengers.
