After signing important contracts with Guangzhou Shipyard and AVIC Weihai in China, TTS proves once again it's strong position in the RoPax segment.
TTS Group have through its subsidiary TTS Marine AB, recently signed contracts with Guangzhou Shipyard and AVIC Weihai in China to deliver access equipment for three RoPax vessels.
The contract with Guangzhou Shipyard is for two RoPax vessels of 230 meters for DFDS. The vehicle capacity will be 4 500 lane meters/600 passengers and TTS will deliver access equipment, such as stern ramps, external doors, car decks and ramps. There is a continued strong development in the Baltic region and the new ships will improve the efficiency of the DFDS route network in the region.
The contract with AVIC Weihai is for a RoPax of 214,5 meters with a vehicle capacity of 3 100 lane meters and 1 000 passengers for Stena RoRo. The ship will be chartered for a period of 10 years by DFDS to strengthen the Dover - Calais route starting 2021. With this capacity, it will be the largest ship on the Channel. TTS will deliver access equipment, such as external doors, ramps, stern and bulkhead doors for the vessel.
To ensure that a clean system is installed, both Guangzhou and AVIC will use the TTS IFS-70 flushing unit during installation of the TTS equipment that will have a positive effect throughout the lifetime of the vessels.
"It is exciting to be a part of the high expansion of RoPax vessels that will traffic northern Europe in the near future. These contracts in addition to previous orders at AVIC, Xiamen, Flensburg and Guangzhou give us a strong position in the RoPax segment. We strongly believe that our knowledge and early involvement in projects is important for the customers and have led to these contracts.  We are happy to see high activity in China within the RoPax segment and are proud to be selected as supplier to these projects.", says Jonas Persson, VP Sales & Projects at TTS Marine AB
