China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) has reportedly received an order for four ‘LNG ready’ Ro-Pax vessels, with options on four more, from Italian ferry operators Onorato Armatori and Grandi Navi Veloci.
The vessels will each have 3,765 m of linear capacity and be able to accommodate 2,500 passengers.
Both Onorato Armatori and Grandi Navi Veloci will each receive delivery of two new buildings from 2020 onwards.
“Today we are taking a further step in the process begun some time ago of offering to our cargo and passenger customers the finest network of departures with vessels that are young, efficient and with low environmental impact,” said Achille Onorato.
“This further step will allow us, as we continue to invest for the long term, to offer a continuously improving service, increasingly consolidating our desire to take the brand Italy proudly across the seas and to constitute a resource and an infrastructure that serves our country, continuing to create new jobs.”
