Finnlines getting ready for the introduction of green ships in 2022

By | 2021 Newsletter week 47 | No Comments

FINNECO III, the third and last hybrid roro vessel in a series, was launched in China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Jiangsu) on 22 November 2021.

When entering the Finnlines traffic, the new vessels will reduce environmental impact of the fleet and improve energy efficiency. Lithium-ion battery systems will allow zero-emission port visits and low-emission two-stroke engines, emission abatement systems, solar panels and an innovative air lubrication system will cut emissions further.

The hybrid roro vessels will start in Finnlines’ Baltic, North Sea and Biscay traffic in 2022.
