Brittany Ferries Salamanca press pack; word format, English

8th February 2022

Brittany Ferries is proud to announce the arrival of the company’s first LNG (liquefied natural gas) vessel.

Salamanca is a sister-ship to Galicia (launched in December 2020) and represents a significant step in the company’s fleet renewal plan. She promises a smoother, quieter voyage for crew, passengers and freight drivers. And significantly lower emissions for port partners, maritime neighbours and wider society.

Salamanca embodies the sights, sounds and tastes of the region she will serve, giving passengers an experience of their destination from the moment they step on board. From delicious food and comfortable cabins, to fine art and an exclusive C-Club lounge, Salamanca will surprise and delight throughout a voyage.

Like Galicia, Salamanca is an E-Flexer type vessel, constructed by partner Stena Ro-Ro. The E stands for efficiency and Flexer for flexibility. These are two motifs that apply equally to three further vessels of this type set to join the Brittany Ferries fleet.

In 2023, a second LNG-powered ship Santoña will join her sisters, adding further capacity on UK Spain routes. She will be followed by two LNG-hybrid vessels which will replace two much-loved but older ships Bretagne (1989) and Normandie (1992), serving routes linking the UK with France.
