Tasmanian TT-Line gives up building two ferries with the Finnish Rauma

Following the impact of the pandemic, the State of Tasmania aims to focus on the benefits to the local economy

Australian public company TT-Line Company announced that the Tasmanian government, which owns the company of sailing, decided to give up the two new ferries whose construction had been agreed earlier this year with the Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) shipyard after the same contract with the German shipyard FSG had failed ( 27 February 2020). The executive's decision was as a result of the economic implications for the state Tasmanian determined by the Covid-19 pandemic, and in in particular the need to take into account Tasmania and Australia as part of the renewal of the company's fleet.

TT-Line President Michael Grainger "The decision is not a result of the quality business case developed by TT-Line or capacity RMC to deliver the proposed contracts. It's just a matter of explained -- a matter of timing and impact without covid-19 is having and will have on the economies state and national. The government and TT-Line - pointed out Grainger - still believe that it is essential that ships in the coming years replaced to support growing transport needs passengers and goods from the state. So we look forward to work with the government on the next proposal and on the business case that will further maximize the benefits for the economy local area.'
