On the 23rd of June 2017, on “Wulkan Nowy” slipway at the Industrial Part of Szczecin, ceremony of laying the keel for a passenger and car ferry (ro-pax) took place. The ferry, which is to be delivered to the Polish Baltic Shipping Company, will be constructed in Szczecin by Maritime Ship Repair Yard J.S.C. “Gryfia”. The official beginning of building of the passenger and car ferry for Polish Baltic Shipping Company was marked by the ceremony of laying the keel on “Wulkan Nowy” slipway on the premises of Industrial Part of Szczecin marked. It is Maritime Ship Repair Yard J.S.C. “Gryfia” that is responsible for constructing the ferry, which bears number B 145-I/01. The ferry will be 202,4 m long and 30,8 m wide. With the design draught of 6,3 m, she will be able to reach a speed of 18 knots. The new ferry will be capable of accommodating the crew of 70 and 400 passengers aboard. Thanks to applied solutions, she will be a modern ferry that will meet high environmental standards. The Ro-Pax will be equipped with an internal combustion and electric propulsion and the main fuel used by her will be liquid natural gas (LNG). It will be possible for the ferry to be refuelled at the LNG terminal in ┼Üwinouj┼Ťcie and of the port of Ystad. The main designers of the ferry are Messrs Piotr ┼╗elazek and Marek Nowak from Westcon Design office. A few reputed Polish design offices are expected to take part in later stages of the project. In keeping with the accepted schedule, the Shipyard will begin constructing sections the end of 2017, the beginning of 2018. Next, in June of 2018, work will begin on the slipway. The ferry is scheduled to be launched in 2019 and re-delivered to the ship-owner in 2020. Chairman of Maritime Ship Repair Yard J.S.C. “Gryfia”, Mr Marek Ró┼╝alski, stressed symbolic meaning of laying the keel. This beautiful, maritime tradition constitutes a very important moment in the process of building ships – the day of laying the keel is a milestone in the process of building a ship and from then on a classification society is entrusted with overseeing construction. Building the ferry for the Polish Baltic Shipping Company is one of key elements of the government’s Responsible Development Plan (Plan To Responsibly Develop), the aim of which is to move Polish shipyards in the direction of constructing larger, highly specialised ships, while enhancing competitiveness of ferry operators at home.

Maritime Ship Repair Yard “Gryfia” J.S.C. has won the contract to build four new icebreakers for Regional Water Management Board in Gdansk. The offer by the shipyard was acknowledged as the most advantageous as a result of performing examination and estimation of offers as part of an open tender. The process of examination and estimation was done by the Client. Two shipyards, MSR Gryfia S.A. and REMONTOWA Shipbuilding S.A., will be bidding for the contract. The building of the icebreakers will be financed from the funds of the Subsidy Programme “Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020”. The deadline for completion of the order, as set by the Client, is in the fourth quarter of 2021. The contract is for one first-line icebreaker and three second-line icebreakers to be constructed. A first-line icebreaker will be used for breaking up thick ice cover and cutting out a straight ice-free route for other ships whereas the task of second-line icebreakers will be to pulverise the already broken up ice and to widen the straight ice-free route cut out by the first-line icebreakers as well as to cut out an ice-free route where the first-line icebreakers cannot gain access. All the ships will be adapted to function as tugboats and rescue ships. The icebreakers will be adapted to perform the above-mentioned functions thanks to a connection aimed at providing a hose to the installation of a ship being extinguished. Thanks to the ability to install an oil spill containment boom aboard, they will be able to fight oil spills. Each of the icebreakers is to be equipped with living quarters and a social room for the crew of six. The ships will be built at the shipyard in Szczecin. It is another series of icebreakers that will be built by MSR Gryfia. In 2014, two similar icebreakers, namely, first-line icebreaker Stanis┼éaw and second-line icebreaker Andrzej were built and handed over to Regional Water Management Board in Szczecin. At the moment, Regional Water Management Board in Gdansk has five icebreakers at its disposal – Tygrys, Orka, Foka, ┼╗bik and Rekin, which are from 24 to 31 years old. The building of the four new icebreakers is part of the programme to renew the flotilla of icebreakers across Poland.
