Sjöfartstidningen: The new Kvarken “bridge” is green

The newbuilding project started from a list of environmental goals rather than a draft for an outline specification

THE ROPAX-FERRY AURORA Botnia is the first ever purpose-built newbuilding for the route Vasa–Umeå, operated by Wasaline.

“The whole ferry design was based upon minimizing the environmental footprint. We had a long list of things to be done to make it as energy efficient and environmentally friendly as possible”, says Peter Ståhlberg, Managing Director of Wasaline
