OSK-ShipTech to Design MSC’s RoPax Giants

Danish OSK-ShipTech will provide the concept design for the four RoPax ferries ordered by MSC Group and Onorato Armatori earlier this month.

The ships will be built by Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) and China Shipbuilding Trading Co. (CSTC), which are part of CSSC, and represent the world’s largest ferry order to this day.

The LNG-ready RoPax-ferries will each have a capacity of 3,765 lane meters and 536 cabins with room for 2,500 passengers in total.

“Our two largest clients are now doing business together, so to us, this is a dream-scenario, where we are appointed designers on the basis of earlier projects and long-term successful cooperation with all parties. This is such a significant project, and this order is a fantastic opportunity to bring our competencies, the yard’s strength and the owners’ joint pool of many years’ of experience into play,” CCO of OSK Group, Anders Ørgård, said.

Italian operator GNV under MSC Group will take two ferries, and the other two will be delivered to Italian operator Onorato Armatori.

The contract includes an option for four additional ferries of the same type.

The first of the four ferries is scheduled for delivery to GNV in 2021.
