Almost 400 passengers have been evacuated from fast ferry PINAR DEL RIO after the vessel ran aground near the Port of Denia in the late evening hours of August 16.
Brittany Ferries has signed an agreement with Spanish energy company Repsol for the delivery of LNG to its Spanish operations.
Repsol will install a fixed quayside LNG storage and supply system in one of Brittany Ferries’ two Spanish ports, Santander or Bilbao. Repsol will then supply LNG to Brittany Ferries’ SALAMANCA. A final decision on the location of the terminal will be made later in 2019.
Construction of the new ship is planned at the Avic International Weihai shipyard in China. Under the agreement between Brittany Ferries and Repsol, the supply of LNG will begin in 2022.
