DFDS has signed a contract with Chinese shipyard Jinling for the construction of two new RoRo vessels. The ships will be the biggest freight vessels in DFDS' history. Each ship will boast a loading capacity of 6,700 lanemeters, corresponding to 450 trailers.

They will also be the most energy effective vessels ever in DFDS' fleet. The vessels are the first to be built after the new IMO standard EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index), which sets significantly lower limits for energy consumption and emissions relative to energy capacity and power, writes DFDS in a message.
