DFDS has signed an agreement with the Siem Group to bareboat-charter two new 4,076 lane metre, 262 trailer capacity ro-ro freight vessels for five years, with options to purchase the ships. Delivery is expected to take place in May and September 2017 and they will be used on the North Sea, adding around 20% more capacity compared to the ships they are expected to replace.
