RO-RO ORDER FOR REVITALISED FSG YARD

Thursday, December 3, 2020 

Flensburger Schiffbaugesellschaft (FSG) has reported its first order since its new start under the direction of Tennor Holding, with a 140m ro-ro order, plus an option for a second, from IVP Ship Invest.

IVP Ship Invest is owned by Lars Windhorst, founder of Tennor Holding, which now controls the FSG yard. The contrated delivery date is April 2022. “This order is an important building block for the future of the Flensburg shipyard”, said FSG CEO Philipp Maracke. “Construction is scheduled to start in December. With the implementation of the order we are proving FSG’s ability to act. I know how much our 360 employees are looking forward to finally being able to develop and build highly efficient vessels again. Lars Windhorst has thus kept his promise to support the FSG in a difficult situation.”

The 210m x 26m ship will feature low fuel consumption and a claimed 'unique' loading concept. It will be powered by two 9,600kW main engines.

“We will continue to expand our innovative lead in order to address the issue of zero emissions and achieve ecological and economic market leadership in special shipbuilding,” said Maracke.
