Uljanik: Second Ferry for Jadrolinija Hits the Water

On the 8th of February 2014, Yard No. 504, constructed by ULJANIK Shipyard for the Croatian national shipping company Jadrolinija from Rijeka, was launched into the sea from slipway number one.

This is the second of a series of four identical Ro-Ro passenger vessels designed for two-way direct transportation of 600 passengers in summer months or 320 passengers in the winter period in the closed lounge. The ferries will also be able to transport 145 standard vehicles or 16 trailers of 40 tonnes each.

Leading people from Uljanik and Jadrolinija attended the launching while the first lady of the ceremony, Ms Sandra Bilić, an engineer who works at the shipyard, released the vessel into the sea with the traditional cutting of the rope.

All vessels from the series will be 99.8 m long, 17.5 m wide and have a draught of 2.4 m, a deadweight at maximum draught of 950 tonnes and  a speed of 12.5 knots. Each vessel will be driven by four Volvo (Penta) main engines, each having a power of 442 kW at 1800 rpm.

The contract for construction of the vessel was signed on 4th March, while its keel was laid in the beginning of October last year. After the launching, the keel for Yard No. 506 was laid on the slipway for a vessel which will be identical to the launched Yard 504, and which is also being constructed by Uljanik for Jadrolinija.
