The Molslinjen passenger and car ferry
Construction of the new ferry Hammershus for Danish shipping company Molslinjen, the inaugural ship commission of Rauma Marine Constructions, is currently underway at the Rauma shipyard.
The 158-meter ferry is due to enter service in autumn 2018. The ship’s passenger capacity has increased from 400 at the time of signing the contract to 720 currently. The vessel can carry some 90 full-trailer trucks of cargo. Its main cargo will be trucks, but the ferry can transport hundreds of personal cars if necessary.
The primary operating route of the ferry will be between Køge, Zealand and Rønne, Bornholm, but the ferry will see use for a period of the year on the route between Rønne and Sassnitz in Germany.
The ship will be constructed in Rauma in full, and its estimated effect on employment is one thousand man-years.
