Chikara signs for trimaran order

BOULOGNE 28 November – Five European shipyards are said to be in talks regarding an order for a fleet of innovative high speed trimaran ro-ro vessels planned to operate from a hub at Boulogne, France. Speaking after a ceremony to mark the signing of a letter of intent with BGV France to buy the 10 vessels, Chikara Shipping chairman John Paul Airs declined to say who his backers were. However, he emphasised that bankers had made financial checks and “are satisfied the funds are there”. He further commented that it would be “premature and incorrect” to talk about prices when the details had not been finalised. Airs indicated that negotiations with shipyards would be completed “as soon as possible” and confirmed that Chikara has plans for services to start from Boulogne to Sheerness, UK, in summer 2008. Other services are planned to Drammen in Norway and Santander and Vigo in northern Spain. Marco Polo funding is being sought to support the business. The initial five newbuildings include two 140-m ro-paxes and three 160-m freight vessels, followed by two more ro-paxes, a freight ro-ro and two 210-m ro-ros for the Spanish route. Boulogne and the other ports will have to invest in new or converted berths.
