Deltamarin For DFDS, OSK For MSC/Moby

Deltamarin Ltd has signed a contract with Chinese Guangzhou Shipyard International Co, Ltd (GSI) for consultancy and engineering services for the DFDS ro-pax ferries.

DFDS originally signed a contract with OSK-ShipTech for the development of the outline concepts and tender documents, for both the ro-ro vessels now contracted at Jinling, and the ro-pax vessels contracted at GSI.

When MSC/GNV/Moby decided to order ferries at GSI too, DFDS said it wanted to prefer to have an advisor not involved in both projects.

The shipbuilding contract for two ro-pax ferries was signed on February 12 between DFDS and GSI. Both ro-pax ships are planned to be delivered in 2021.

The 4,500 lane metres, 600-pax ships will be deployed on one of the Baltic routes connecting Lithuania to either Sweden or Germany.

Last week, MSC Group and Onorato Armatori have signed a historical contract with Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) for the order of four luxurious ro-pax ferries. OSK-ShipTech is behind the concept design for the largest ferry order ever.
“Our two largest clients are now doing business together, so to us, this is a dream-scenario, where we are appointed designers on the basis of earlier projects and long-term successful cooperation with all parties. This is such a significant project, and this order is a fantastic opportunity to bring our competencies, the yard’s strength and the owners’ joint pool of many years’ of experience into play,” says CCO of OSK Group, Anders Ørgård.
The contract includes an option for four additional ferries of the same type. In any case, this a record ferry order – and a quantum leap for the joint cooperation between GSI and OSK.
