SSW GmbH 70 eliminate some passenger capacity for additional RoRo space. It will also receive a new name, Tom Sawyer. While
SSW GmbH is strictly a new construc- tion facility, it agreed to the conversion because it built the ship.
Apart from the RoPax ships, SSW
GmbH also has an order for seven con- tainerships (pictured on page 52) plus three options. The 696 x 97.7 ft. (212.2 x 29.8 m) new design features improved lines, which as a result are intended to provide the same speed with less installed power. The 27,000 dwt. GL- classed ship will have a 22 knot speed courtesy of a Wartsila 7RTA 72 U-B powerplant which generates 21,560 kW at 99 rpm.
Of the 2,500 container spaces avail- able, nearly 14 percent — 340 — are for cool carriers. First steel was cut in April, and the launching is set for October.
Three hulls in the series will be built in
Romania, coming to Germany for full outfitting. The last of the seven vessels is due for delivery in mid 2003.
Three shipbuilding contracts exceed- ing 400 Million DM (172.6 million) were recently awarded to Liibeck, Ger- many-based Flender Werft. The con- tracts include a RoRo passenger ferry for Smyril Line of the Faroe Islands, which will be built in accordance with
