Tulipa Seaways takes to the water for the first time

She got her first taste of the water on Friday when she was launched from the construction berth to be completed alongside the quay. The superstructure, consisting of the bridge and accommodation facilities, are still to be added.

Tulipa Seaways and her sister ship, Gardenia Seaways, are 210m long and offer capacity for 262 trailers with a load space of 4,076m.

They will both operate on the Rotterdam – Immingham freight route. Gardenia Seaways will be handed over and enter service at the end of June.

β€œIn spite of Brexit, we still see freight volumes on our North Sea routes growing, and we are confident the ships will offer the capacity, reliability and a significantly improved quality of service, which our customers will appreciate,” said Niels Smedegaard, CEO of DFDS.
