German shipyard Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) has completed the first cut of steel for SeaRoad’s newest freight-only Ro-Ro vessel.

The new freight vessel will join SeaRoad Mersey II and replace SeaRoad’s charter vessel Liekut to operate on Bass Strait between Melbourne and Devonport. It is scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2023.

The 210-metre-long vessel will feature LNG propulsion, capacity for 4,227 lane metres of freight, and the capability to transport heavy cargo with a unit weight of up to 100 tonnes.
