AURORA BOTNIA to be delivered in mid-June

FerryDelivery of Wasaline’s 1,500-lanemetre and 500-passenger capacity AURORA BOTNIA, under construction at Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC), has been delayed by a few weeks with the hybrid gas-electric ro-pax ferry now expected to be handed over in mid-June.

“The pandemic that has now lasted for over a year, has delayed deliveries of the main equipment, among other things. With the handover taking place in June, we will be able to ensure that the number of employees working on the ship's finishing and commissioning work can be kept within safe limits,” stated Jyrki Heinimaa, CEO of Rauma Marine Constructions.

“Together with RMC we have agreed on a revised schedule. For us, it is crucial to have the vessel completed as coronavirus-safely as possible. Given the challenging global situation, the new schedule is acceptable to us,” Peter Ståhlberg, CEO of Wasaline, added

WASA EXPRESS, earlier sold to Red Sea ferry operator UME, will continue to serve the world’s northernmost all-year passenger route between Vaasa and Umeå until the introduction of AURORA BOTNIA.
