Scandia Seaways departs from Jinling
After three and a half years, Scandia Seaways, the sixth and final DFDS mega freight ferry from Jinling Shipyard, could finally set course towards Singapore and afterwards Europe. This marks the conclusion of an extensive project that saw the delivery of Ephesus Seaways, Troy Seaways, Hollandia Seaways, Humbria Seaways, Flandria Seaways and now Scandia Seaways.
For close to five years, the management of this huge project has lied in the hands of Senior Project Manager Jens Peter Baltsersen. He says:
“It’s my pleasure to confirm that after a successful flag change Saturday afternoon as well as the completion of the last tests and bunkering, Scandia Seaways left the Jinling Shipyard Sunday morning at 09.58.”
“Captain Joakim Dahlberg, Chief Engineer Mads Jonsen and crew are now heading towards Singapore to pick up onboard stores, provision and spare parts. After that they will continue to Europe through the Suez Canal. I wish them a great and safe journey.”
