Rauma Marine Constructions has started the construction of the first of two ropax ferries ordered by the Australian company Spirit of Tasmania.

The vessels will operate an extremely challenging open sea route between mainland Australia and Tasmania.

The start of construction was celebrated in Rauma on February, 28, in a traditional steel cutting ceremony.

The route the vessels are set to operate will be the world’s southernmost ferry route powered by LNG.
