HVAC | RoPax Ferries Veteran and Legionnaire

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador (GNL) ordered two Damen vessels as part of their ‘lifeline’ vessel replacement programme to modernize its fleet. For GNL, upgrading the safety level and reliability of its vessels is a major priority in order to safeguard the well-being of the local islanders as well as visitors to the region. GNL’s provincial fleet annually transports over 900.000 passengers, 400.000 vehicles and 20.000 tonnes of freight with more than 50.000 arrivals and departures.

RoPax Ferries

MV Veteran is the first of the two-vessel contract, with a design from a Canadian-Danish partnership between Fleetway and Knud E. Hansen. MV Veteran was launched in 2015 by Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania.

Robust ferries for continuous service

These vessels will operate in an area where they have to be able to manoeuvre in drifting ice. The ferries have Ice class 1AA certification and can handle the impact of 40 cm-thick floating ice at 4 knots.
