Cantabria wishes good journey to «SANTOÑA», the new ship

Cantabria welcomes «Santoña», the new Brittany Ferries Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) ship named after this Cantabrian town, and wished a «good voyage» to this «colossus» of 215 meters in length and almost 28 meters in beam that will make, from today on, the Santander-Portsmouth route twice a week (Wednesdays and Sundays).

This is the first ship operating in Santander´s Port with LNG, a much more efficient and ecological fuel than traditional ones, and also the first in the Brittany Ferries fleet with a Cantabrian name.

The arrival of the Santoña has been possible thanks to the commitment of the Santander Port Authority and Repsol to build the Liquefied Natural Gas terminal, which has cost 40 million euros. This facility is part of the investment plan in which the Port is immersed, for a value of 140 million, which also includes the future cruise and container terminals and which will make it possible to reach, «not far away», the goal of 8 million tons.
