Our largest RoPax ferry is soon on her way to Europe

Last week, we had the great pleasure of taking delivery of the first newbuilt passenger vessel contracted by DFDS since SCANDINAVIA was delivered in 1982.

Aura Seways

AURA SEAWAYS was built at Guangzhou Shipyard International (known as GSI) in Southern China. With 4500 lane meters, she will by far become our largest RoPax ferry in terms of cargo capacity. With a deadweight (the term for cargo/payload, fuel, ballast and stores capacity) of around 12750 tons, she can carry almost three times more than SCANDINAVIA.

AURA SEAWAYS fulfils the new design standards of EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index), and the CO2 emissions per trailer are more than 20 % lower than on the vessels currently trading on the intended routes Karlshamn-Klaipeda and Kiel-Klaipeda.

Our colleagues have eagerly awaited her in BU Baltic, and we hope she will serve them well.

A great thank you and recognition to the site team and crew who are working hard under difficult conditions in China to prepare the vessel for the voyage to Europe. We wish them fair winds.
