Scandlines and Blohm+Voss in Hamburg have signed a memorandum of understanding concerning the completion of the two ships that Scandlines acquired in March 2014. The ferry operator expects that the two ships can be deployed on the Gedser-Rostock service ahead of the peak season 2015, says Scandlines in a press release on Wednesday.

Scandlines and Blohm+Voss expect to negotiate the final details of the contract by early summer 2014. The two new ferries will replace M/F Kronprins Frederik and M/F Prins Joachim, which are currently operating on Gedser-Rostock. The two new ships are designed specifically for this service and will provide significantly more capacity, as both vessels will be able to carry 1,300 passengers and 96 trucks or 480 cars.
