Repowering of two Danish Baltic Sea Ferries at Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH

In the morning of August 17, 2004, the Danish Baltic Sea ferry PRINS JOACHIM was floated into Dock 16 of Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH. In the course of the docking period, the ferry of Scandlines Denmark will be equipped with more powerful engines, i.e. six MAK main engines with a total power of 23,000 kW. As a result, the crossing from Rostock to Gedser (DK) will be reduced from 120 to 105 minutes.

In addition, two new Flender gearboxes and a waste heat boiler will be installed and the pipe and supply systems will be renewed as well.

To increase the power supply on board, the ferry will be provided with a new generator with a capacity of 1,500 kW. In addition to the extension of the monitoring and alarm system IMACS, the bridge equipment will also be modernized. Finally, the paint work of the hull will be renewed.

The old paint work will be gently removed using the Dockmaster producing a water jet pressure of up to 2,800 bar. This process is characterized by its high economic efficiency and friendliness to the environment. In mid-October, the PRINS JOACHIM will leave the yard.

The second ferry, the KRONSPRINS FREDERIK, will arrive at Blohm + Voss Repair in October.

Main dimensions of the ferries:

Breadth: 23.08 m
