RoRo ferry MV Tennor Ocean sets course for Bremerhaven

Newbuilding 782 has left the Flensburg Fjord today and set course for Bremerhaven. The 210-metre-long RoRo ferry is on the move to Dock 3 at Lloyd Werft.

During its week-long stay there, the shipbuilders of Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) will carry out the remaining work on the ship’s hull to optimise the performance data. Afterwards, MV Tennor Ocean will set out on a multi-day test voyage on the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. In a tightly scheduled programme, all technical systems will be checked and nautical manoeuvres will be carried out.

Already during the voyage from Flensburg to Bremerhaven, the 2.11-metre-high folding mast will be tested. It has been newly developed by FSG for this type of ship and enables the passage through the Kiel Canal, which connects the Baltic and the North Sea. In this waterway, the mast height of a ship may not exceed 40 metres above the water level.

The ferry MV Tennor Ocean is able to accommodate 279 truck trailers on more than 4,000 lane metres spread over four decks. The RoRo type 4100, which was developed by FSG and has already been built several times by the shipyard, is characterised by particularly low fuel consumption compared to the market and an innovative loading concept.
