Nordana has placed an order with Italian shipyard Visentini for the first of its next generation of multipurpose roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro) vessels.

The new vessel is scheduled to be delivered in May 2014 and is part of the company’s tonnage renewal programme for its Mediterranean / Americas ro-ro service.

By the end of 2014, the company expects to completely replace its current fleet with three new eco-friendly ro-ro vessels.

The vessel design has been developed by the Visentini yard and Naos Ship and Boat Design in collaboration with Nordana.

According to Nordana, the hull design and machinery of the vessel will offer fuel economy and features performance standards for protective coating and ballast water treatment.

The vessel will also be equipped with new technologies to meet sulphur oxide (SOx), nitrogen oxide (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions targets.

Compared to the current tonnage, the new vessel will have about 35% higher capacity and its high speed will improve transit times to all the main ports it serves as well as lessen fuel costs due to better engine efficiency.

The new vessel will have a length of 179m, width of 26.2m, deadweight of 11,060t and will be capable of running at a top speed of 20 knots.

The 200t capacity stern ramp, hoistable car decks and two 40t capacity deck cranes will allow the vessel to handle heavy and out-of-gauge cargoes.
