The new ropax ferry ordered by Rete Ferroviaria Italia (Rfi) at San Giorgio del Porto and T. Mariotti shipyards, was successfully launched a few days ago with a load-out and float-off operation.
The ferry, suitable for the transportation of railway carriages, wagons, passengers and vehicles, will be deployed in the Strait of Messina.
The hull of the new unit is now heading from San Giorgio di Nogaro to Genoa, under tow by tug GIANEMILIO C. (MarineTraffic).
The construction will be completed in the coming months.
The hull is already equipped with engines, generators, propulsion machinery and systems.
