RFI, race for two fast dual fuel ships for the Strait of Messina

Option for the supply of a third ship

Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI) has published in the "Gazzetta Italiana" Official" of the European Union the tender for the supply of two fast dual fuel ships for the Strait of Messina. The race has a value of 52 million euros, financed with the funds of the Plan National Recovery and Resilience. The call also provides for the option for RFI to entrust the successful tenderer with the supply of a third ship with the same characteristics, in the amount of 22.5 millions of euros.

The new ships will have a dual diesel/gas supply and electric, with energy-efficient technologies that allow zero emissions of CO2 and greenhouse gases, both in port and in the entry and exit maneuvers. Each ship will have a length of about 50 meters and will be able to carry 350 people.
