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.

The newly built ro-pax unit CIUDAD DE VALENCIA (hull n° 229) left the Cantiere Navale Visentini shipyard in Porto Viro (Rovigo) and is currently in the port of Trieste for some final works before sea trials start.

The vessel will join Trasmediterranea’s fleet in long time charter and is expected to be deployed on the routes linking Spain mainland to Canary or Balearic Islands.
The delivery will take place before the end of July.

Designed by Naos Design, this ro-pax unit is 203m long, 25m wide and will be able to accommodate 1,000 passengers and 2,600 linear metres of ro-ro cargo.

Cantiere Navale Visentini is already working on the next two ro-pax new buildings with delivery scheduled before summer 2021 (the first one) and in 2022 (the second one ordered by Corsica Linea).
