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

The latest Schottel tugs for the Fairplay shipping company are equipped with Schottel Rudderpro- pellers of type STT 1515 CP.

Zamakona. Both are equipped with two

Schottel Rudderpropellers — type SRP 1515 CP (2,025 kW each) — and one

Schottel STT 110 LK Transverse

Thruster, type (2.8 tons of thrust). The tugs are stationed in Rotterdam, and are used primarily for offshore tasks, achiev- ing a bollard pull of 67 tons and a for- ward speed of 13.5 knots. Schottel also presented a full-size example of the

Schottel type STP 200 Twin Propeller (max. 420 kW), a propulsion system that is the successful optimization of the complete Schottel Rudderpropeller sys- tem.

Schiffbau-Gesellschaft. In addition, a pair of 3,600-TEU containerships will be built for Hamburg-based shipowner

Claus-Peter Offen.

These newbuildings will be initiated directly following the Superfast Ferries currently under construction at the yard, and will keep the yard fully occupied to the start of 2003.

Greek ferry operator Attica Enterpris- es took delivery of its new Superfast VII ferry, the first of four sister ships, from

Howaldtswerke Werft (HDW) shipyards in Kiel, Germany. Attica's new ferries will be deployed in the Baltic Sea, serv- ing routes between Germany and Fin- land and Germany and Sweden. Super- fast VII will start commercial operations linking the German port of Rostock with

Hanko in Finland on May 17. with

Superfast VIII joining it in about six months. Attica Enterprises said its new

Baltic cruise-class ferries have a capaci- ty for 626 passengers, 85 cars and 110 trucks each.
