Corsica Linea opts for Deltamarin E-Flexer design

Deltamarin has signed a design contract with China Merchants Jinling shipyard (Weihai) for the complete basic and detail design of a new RoPax vessel.

The RoPax is the 13th vessel in the Stena RoRo’s E-Flexer series and is the first to be delivered to the Mediterranean region. Corsica Linea will charter the vessel for operation on the Marseille – Corsica route from Stena RoRo with a purchase option. Delivery of the vessel is scheduled for the first quarter of 2026.

The design is based on Stena-RoRo’s proven E-Flexer concept, where each of the vessels are technically and commercially adapted to customer needs. The Corsica Linea vessel will have a capacity of 1000 passengers and 2500 lane meters of ro-ro cargo. Engineering of the Corsica Linea RoPax vessel starts immediately at Deltamarin Finland and most of the work will be carried out during 2024.

Sustainability is one of the fundamental design principles for the vessels design, hence the vessels can meet the environmental requirements by a wide margin, the company comments. Features of the vessel’s performance are its optimized design of the hull, propellers and rudders. It will be equipped with LNG dual-fuel engines, which allow future transition to both liquid and gaseous bio/e-fuels. Designed with the “Battery power” classification society notation, the vessel is also primed to utilise batteries for propulsion in the future.
