Teknotherm to finalize the HVAC systems for RoPax HONFLEUR
We are excited to announce that Teknotherm has been awarded the contract to finalize the HVAC systems for RoPax ferry HONFLEUR. Back in 2017 Brittany Ferries ordered HONFLEUR at Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellshaft (FSG) Shipyard in Germany. However, when FSG Shipyard went bankrupt in 2019, its Norwegian owner Siem Group signed a contract with Fosen Yard in Norway to complete the project.
HONFLEUR – now named newbuilding 93 – was designed to become a 187.4 m LNG fuelled RoPax ferry. The 42,000gt vessel can carry up to 1,680 passengers, with 261 individual cabins, and has a 2,600 lane meter freight deck, with a capacity of 130 freight trucks, or 550 passenger cars and 64 trucks.
Now that the ship has been moved to Norway for completion, Fosen Yard awarded Teknotherm the contract to finalize the HVAC systems. The original contract to supply the HVAC systems was awarded to sister company Drews Marine in Germany in 2017, but this contract was cancelled when FSG Shipyard went bankrupt. Fortunately, Fosen Yard could rely on another HVAC specialist within the Heinen & Hopman group to finalize the project in Norway.
