FSG delivers its largest-ever ro-ro vessel

In December 2012 Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) handed over the first of two identical ro-ro cargo ships to the Turkish shipping company Ulusoy Sealines.

The 208 metre-long Ulusoy-14 (Hull No. 753) is the biggest and longest freight ferry ever built by FSG. The sister ships with space for 283 trailers and a loading capacity of 4,094 lane metres will ply on the route between Cesme and Trieste where they will replace four older vessels.

Ulusoy-14 and her sister ship Ulusoy-15 have almost the same freight capacity as the four older units and their optimized designs allow them to be more efficient and eco-friendly – consuming significantly less fuel and having considerably less waste gas emissions. The hand-over of Ulusoy-15 is scheduled for January 2013.
