Algeria’s state-owned passenger transport line ENTMV, better known as Algérie Ferries, has finally confirmed an order for one ro-pax ferry with China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International
The order represents an investment of US$175M. The 25,000gt vessel will have a capacity for 1800 passengers and 600 cars. Delivery is expected in mid-2019.
It was originally reported in April 2017 that such an order had been placed with GSI, with a delivery term of 26 months- ie mid-2019. Subsequently, however, ENTMV organised a public tender for inspection and surveillance during construction.
