RIGA, June 18 (Itar-Tass) - A new ferry boat line will link Russia, Latvia and Germany, a member of the board of Terrabalt company, Aris Ozolins, told Latvia’s Rietumu Radio on Tuesday.
Latvia’s LSEZ Terrabalt SIA that services ferry boat lines in the port of Liepaja will launch this ferry boat line together with Alfastar ferry boat operator.
The ferry boats will run between Russia’s Ust-Luga, Latvia’s Liepaja, Russia’s Baltiysk and Germany’s Sassnitz.
“Now we take efforts to open a new ferry boat line in cooperation with Alfastar company,” he said. “The ferry boat can place approximately 100 cargo trailers and 110 passengers.”
The exact date for launching a new ferry line will be known within the upcoming days, Ozolins said.
The talks on a new ferry boat line linking Russia and Germany has lasted for almost twelve years. Moreover, they considered Latvia’s port of Ventspils and Lithuania’s Klaipeda instead of Liepaja.
In autumn the company plans to launch a second ferry boat line along this route.
At present, ferry boats owned by one of the world’s largest ferry operators Stena Line run between Latvia’s port of Liepaja and Germany’s Travemunde.
