Scandlines begins search for new ferry yard

Financing problems have halted the construction of two new Scandlines ferries on the STX shipyard in Finland, and the shipping company is now looking for new partners.

The Finnish STX shipyard in Turku has stopped work on the ferries after significant problems securing the proper financing.
