SeaRoad Orders LNG RoRo Vessel

SeaRoad announced that it has secured an agreement for a new vessel to augment their fleet.

The company has reached an agreement with German shipyard, Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG), for the construction of one LNG fuelled roll on – roll off vessel. The delivery of the 180 meter long vessel is planned for late 2016/early 2017.

The new vessel will be purpose-built to service Bass Strait.

The new vessel will continue in service with MV Searoad Tamar pending the arrival of a second new ship at a later date.

SeaRoad will be exploring any options with the government that will allow its King Island service to be maintained beyond the arrival of the new ship.
