Færgen’s CEO Expects A Buyer To Acquire The Entire Ferry Company

The Danish State and Clipper Group will sell the shipping company Faergen, said CEO John Steen-Mikkelsen to the Bornholms Tidende (in Danish). Both parties own 50%.
In his opinion there might be news before the summer, and he believes the company will be sold as a whole.
On September 1, 2018, Molslinjen will take over the Bornholm route.

A new LNG ro-pax is under construction in Flensburg, and will be in service in the spring of 2019. “In the following years we’re going to invest in new tonnage,” says Christophe Mathieu. Last year Brittany Ferries announced that they will charter the third ro-pax under construction in China for Stena.
