M/V Copenhagen, the new hybrid ferry owned by German-Danish ferry operator Scandlines, departed Gedser in the morning hours of December 21, 2016, carrying passengers for the first time. 

MV Copenhagen, which is the second of the company’s two new hybrid ferries built for the Rostock-Gedser route, left the Danish shipyard Fayard on December 19, arriving in Rostock a day later.

“The new ferries represent an investment of more than 140 million EUR per vessel and are a substantial upgrade of the central and eastern transport corridor between the European mainland and Scandinavia,” Søren Poulsgaard Jensen, Scandlines’ CEO, said.

On December 20, M/V Copenhagen carried out a practice run between Rostock and Gedser, according to Scandlines.

M/V Copenhagen has replaced M/V Kronprins Frederik, which will be used as a substitute ferry on both the Rostock-Gedser and Puttgarden-Rødby routes.
