Algerian shipping company ENTMV Algérie Ferries has ordered a new roll-on/roll-off passenger (RoPax) ferry in China. 

The company signed the final contract for the construction of the newbuilding with China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) last month.

As informed, Danish OSK-ShipTech A/S will design the vessel and is currently working on the approval design.

The new RoPax will be 200 meters long, 30 meters wide and will be able to accommodate 1,800 passengers, 180 crewmembers and more than 600 cars. It will be propelled by four main engines with a service speed of 24 knots.

The new ferry will sail between Algeria and a series of larger cities in Southern Europa such as Marseille and Barcelona.

Currently, Algérie Ferries’ fleet comprises a total of six vessels.
