The design of the three additional vessels is in line with the previously delivered vessel “Gaarden”. The ferries will measure 32,40 m by 8,80 m and will be provided with a hybrid drivetrain that can be powered by either generators or by means of a battery bank. The first two ferries will be delivered in February and May 2022 and the last one in the beginning of 2026.
“Holland shipyards successfully prevailed in an European tender among twelve other shipyards. The contract included four ferries but was split into a prototype and an option of three additional vessels. Since the ‘Gaarden’ has been in service for several months and fullfilled her duties, Schlepp- und Fährgesellschaft Kiel is confident to extend the contract as originally intended.” – Ansgar Stalder, Schlepp- und Fährgesellschaft Kiel
With the new vessels, SFK is renewing their current fleet. The replacement of the fleet is in line with the environmental goals set by SFK and the city of Kiel. The city of Kiel aims to be CO2 neutral by 2050 and expects shipping to play a major part in this shift. Replacing the fleet adds great value to this and Holland Shipyards Group is proud to contribute to this.
