Incat 041 JAUME III is set to be refitted in the port of Genoa, by San Giorgio del Porto Shipyard.
The yard is part of Genova Industrie Navali group, in which Fincantieri is expected to take a minority stake in the near future.
Ettore Morace, managing director of Balearia, confirmed to Ferry Shipping News that, “the JAUME III is to undergo significant works in the engine room. The vessel will be completely repowered, and the four main Ruston engines will be replaced by MTU.”
Price tag: €8 million.
Two years ago, Balearia also repowered JAUME II, to improve its energy efficiency, reliability and service as part of the company’s fleet modernization process
