The dual-fuel ferries will be are designed to carry 127 cars or 16 HGVs, or a combination of both, and up to 1,000 passengers.

The new vessels will be constructed by the Glasgow-based shipbuilder and marine fabricator, Ferguson Marine Engineering Limited (FMEL), under a GBP 97 million contract that was awarded in September 2015.

The contracts include supply and integration of the electrical, telecom and integrated control systems, project management, interface management and engineering services at all stages, as well as cables, installation and installation materials.

Kongsberg Maritime estimated that the engineering and construction phase would last for two years.
