Corsica Linea took delivery of the new LNG-powered RoPax named A GALEOTTA, built by Cantiere Navale Visentini shipyard in Porto Viro.
The vessel will have the capacity to accommodate 650 passengers and 2,560 lane meters of freight. Also, the ship will be able to carry 150 cars on a separate deck.
Corsica Linea’s ferries provide year-round services from Marseille, the main trading port in France to the Mediterranean island of Corsica. The vessel is to be deployed on the route linking Marseille and Ajaccio / Bastia.
Dutch firm Titan will bunker Corsica Linea’s first LNG-powered RoPax in Marseille, as part of a deal revealed in January this year. Titan will first provide truck-to-ship operations until its 4,500 m3 LNG bunkering vessel KRIOS arrives.
