Finnish ferry operator Finnlines, has taken delivery of its second of three RoRo vessels, Finneco II, in its new eco class a few days ago. The first was delivered to the company last month and the third is planned to be delivered in a few days.

With these RoRo ships, Finnlines makes an attempt to expand its fleet with greener carriers. Ship classification company, RINA, has assigned “Green Plus” for the vessel’s environmental performance.

2-stroke engines
The vessel is packed with 2-stroke engines which consume less fuel compared to 4-stroke engines.

Air lubrication system
The vessel comes fitted with an air lubrication system to minimise frictional and hydrodynamic resistance to further lower fuel consumption and emissions.

Battery power bank
A 5 MW battery power bank is attached to the vessel to achieve zero emissions during port calls.

Exhaust gas cleaning system
An exhaust gas cleaning system is fitted to cut air emissions and reduce harmful particles being released into the environment.
