Corsica Ferries announced that it has acquired a stake in NEOLINE Armateur, which will build a 136-metre-long cargo ship mainly propelled by the wind to save more than 80% of fuel compared to a conventional ro-ro vessel.
Aegean Sea Lines’ crew is currently working at the Port of Mariehamn preparing the former ROSELLA for delivery to her new owner, the Greek Aegean Sea Lines.
The Viking Line ship was sold in December 2022 for EUR 11,25 million.
She will be delivered on January 16, 2023 and renamed ANEMOS.
The ropax will be introduced on the Piraeus- Western Cyclades route on the summer 2023, after a small-scale conversion.
Currently, she is having her original name and livery erased while she is expected to raise the Greek flag within the next days.
