Deltamarin signs a design contract for the 13th E-Flexer RoPax vessel

The new RoPax is the 13th vessel in the Stena RoRo’s E-Flexer series and is the first to be delivered to the Mediterranean region. Corsica Linea will charter the vessel for operation on Marseille – Corsica route from Stena RoRo, with a purchase option. Delivery of the vessel is scheduled for the first quarter of 2026.

The design is based on Stena-RoRo’s proven E-Flexer concept, where each of the vessels are technically and commercially adapted to customer needs. The Corsica Linea vessel will have capacity of 1000 passengers and 2500 lane meters of ro-ro cargo.

Sustainability is one of the fundamental design principles, hence the vessels can meet the environmental requirements by a wide margin. Cornerstones of the vessel’s performance are its optimized design of the hull, propellers and rudders. It will be equipped with LNG dual fuel engines, which allows future transition to both liquid and gaseous bio/e-fuels. Designed with the “Battery power” classification society notation, the vessel is also primed to utilize batteries for propulsion in the future.

Engineering of the Corsica Linea RoPax vessel starts immediately at Deltamarin Finland and most of the work will be carried out during 2024.
