Danish ship design company Knud E Hansen has announced that another of its projects, the DFDS ro-ro vessel 'Humbria Seaways' has been handed over to its owner.

Expected to leave builder Jinling Shipyard in China on 9 January, the 237.4m long and 33m beam fourth ship in the series is expected to be deployed on one of DFDS’s North Sea services, although no specific route has been announced. Sister ship Hollandia Seaways was introduced on the Gothenburg-Ghent service in late November. The first two ships in the six-ship series operate as Ephesus Seaways and Troy Seaways between Istanbul and Trieste.

Jinling is also building the 12-ship GG5G Class for Grimaldi Group, a 7,800-lane-metre derivative of the DFDS vessels of which three modified versions will sail under the Finnlines banner. The first ship in the GG5G series was floated last month; these mega-freighters too were designed by Knud E. Hansen.
