ECOAQUA, the Most Outstanding Vessel in 2017
Ecoaqua, built by GONDAN, has been chosen as the Most Outstanding Vessel (Buque destacado) in 2017 in Spain. This was announced during the last act of celebration of the Virgin of Carmen of the Association of Naval and Oceanic Architects of Spain.
EcoAqua is the first of the four GRP eco-fast ferries that GONDAN has built for Baleària. It was delivered to its shipowner at the end of 2017. With 28m length, it has capacity for 350 passengers. It stands out for its comfort, speed and reliability during navigation, as well as the incorporation of photovoltaic solar panels, which provide the necessary energy for on-board services.
DUX, built by GONDAN, was also one the four finalist vessels. It is the first dual-fuel tug – of a series of three – built in Europe. It was delivered to the Norwegian shipowner Østensjø Rederi A / S in May last year.
