Eurotunnel hands over ferries to DFDS

Eurotunnel, the parent company of MyFerryLink, has handed over two ferries, the Rodin and the Berlioz, to the DFDS Group, in Dunkirk, under a bareboat charter agreement in accordance with a contract signed at the start of June 2015.

However, it said that as a result of damage suffered by the ships while they were under the care of the liquidator of the SCOP SeaFrance, a period of repairs will be necessary.

In a statement it said: “MyFerryLink would like to restate that it was obliged to abandon its maritime operations by the British competition authorities at the end of the period covered by the operating contracts with the SCOP SeaFrance, on 01 July 2015.”
