TT-Line starts weekly Trelleborg-Klaipeda service
German ferry operator TT-Line, which took delivery of its lengthened PETER PAN last week, will inaugurate a weekly Trelleborg, Sweden to Klaipeda, Lithuania ro-pax service starting on Saturday 9 June.
Ferry starts trials three months behind schedule
After multiple delays the "Peter Pan" finally left Bremerhaven on May 28 at 11 p.m. for trials after having been enlengthened at German Dry Docks (GDD) by a 30 meter-section during the last five months. If the tests are successful, the ferry was expected to return into the Travemünde–Trelleborg run during this week, but three months later than planned. The ship had entered dock 5 end of December 2017 and was to be redelivered end of February. But especially trouble with the electircal installations caused a significant delay.

Lengthened PETER PAN floated out but not ready yet
The lengthening of PETER PAN is taking longer than first expected and although the now 220-metre-long ro-pax left the ‘Floating Dock V’ of German Dry Docks in Bremerhaven on Easter Monday, the exact re-delivery date to TT-Line is still unknown.Upload News
