DFDS Named its Newest Ro-Ro Ship in Turkey
Copenhagen-based DFDS named its newest -- and the Mediterranean's largest -- Ro-Ro ship in Turkey.
The naming ceremony for 237-meter-long roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) newbuilding, Ephesus Seaways, was held in Istanbul, Turkey. Ephesus Seaways vessel with a 6,700 linear-meter capacity has also been put into service.
The ship will also be the largest vessel to serve DFDS customers on the routes between Turkey and the EU.
Eva Lundstedt, who is the wife of Volvo’s CEO Martin Lundstedt, gave the ship her name and made a short speech about the importance of this ferry for people in the region and DFDS.
It will be the largest freight ferry ever to service DFDS’ customers on routes between Turkey and the EU. Its first departure will be on 9 March from Istanbul with arrival in Trieste on 11 March.
“We are extremely proud to present this new ferry to our customers. With space for 6,700 lane metres of cargo, our customers, the Turkish and European logistics companies, can look forward to greater capacity,” says EVP Peder Gellert, Head of DFDS Ferry Division.
“This ferry is the first of an order of six from the Chinese Jinling Shipyard and will be deployed in DFDS’ route network. It was reflagged under the Turkish flag, and re-named to Ephesus Seaways in accordance with our principle of naming our Mediterranean ships after UNESCO heritage sites in Turkey,” says Selçuk Boztepe, Senior Vice President of DFDS in the Mediterranean.
