Incat Crowther is pleased to announce a project to design a 1000-passenger high-speed Ro-Pax ferry to operate between mainland China and Taiwan.
To be built by AFAI Southern Shipyard, the Incat Crowther 113 design will be operated by Fujian Strait Shipping Co (CSF) between Pingtan Island and the Taiwanese cities of Taichung, Taipei and Kaohsiung.
The high-speed Ro-Pax ferry will have two vehicle decks, capable of carrying 230 cars or 42 containers.
The resiliently mounted passenger cabin will have seating for 1000, in a mix of economy and business class. Amenities include a duty-free store, café and mahjong room.
The vessel will be powered by four MTU 20V8000 M71L main engines, each producing 9100kW @ 1150rpm. Propulsion is by four Rolls Royce water jets, with power transmission via ZF gearboxes. Auxiliary power is provided by Caterpillar gensets.
Incat Crowther is a proven world leader in fast ferry design and pleased to expand their cooperation with China’s leading aluminium shipbuilder AFAI Southern Shipyard. The Fujian Strait Shipping Co (CSF) vessel will be the largest aluminium ship built in China, and when in operation, will promote the further cross Taiwanese Strait public and economic exchange.
