MOL Pushes Ahead with Sunflower RoPax Duo Order

Japanese shipping conglomerate Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) reported that its group company Ferry Sunflower Limited is moving ahead with plans to construct two large, roll on/roll off passenger (RoPax) ferries.

The new 192 meter ferries will be built by Japan Marine United Corporation and delivered in March and June of 2018 as replacements for the Sunflower Satsuma and Sunflower Kirishima, which serve on the route connecting Osaka Port and Shibushi Port.

The ferries will be able to accommodate 709 passengers and 121 trucks each, and will feature private staterooms with toilets, showers, washbasins, and refrigerators.

Public space on the new ferries will also be about 2.5 times that of current ferries.
