Luxembourg-based short-sea roll-on/roll-off company CLdN Ro-Ro christened its new ferry Laureline in a ceremony in Santander, Spain, on May 10.

Laureline is the 29th unit in the company’s fleet and is one of four vessels built by South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo under a contract from 2017.

The 216-meter RoRo is one of the vessels to connect the ports of Dublin, Zeebrugge and Santander, with three symmetrical sailings each week.

The ferry was delivered to CLdN Ro-Ro in Ulsan, South Korea, in January this year, and arrived for its first port call to Dublin in late March.

According to VesselsValue, Laureline sustained damage to starboard quarter early April as it allided with bollards near Port of Dublin, with dents and a breach above the waterline. The vessel was repaired and set sail two days after the incident.

After sister ship Celine, the 5,400 lane meter Laureline is now the second biggest freight ferry to service Dublin Port. The third ship connecting Dublin to the Continental European ports of Zeebrugge and Rotterdam is the 2,900 lane meter Mazarine.

CLdN has an additional three sister vessels under construction in Korea that will be joining the company’s fleet between end of May and end of September.
