Freo Today. 14 July 2021. It’s not a RO-RO. Nor is it at Freo, Kwinana or Henderson. But it is in Hobart, where our head photographer Deanna Shanahan is on assignment and snapped this super snap of the Volcano de Taidia, a RO-PAX. VEHICLES AND PEOPLE. It’s been built for Spanish ferry operator Naviera Armas by Australia’s Incat as a near identical sister of the company’s earlier ferry Volcan de Tagoro. Volcan de Taidia measures 111 metres long and will have capacity for 1,184 passengers and up to 595 lane metres of freight. The passenger spaces will also include a business class section with 155 seats. And it will have a speed of 34 knots. If you’d like to take a ferry ride on her, you’ll need to head to Las Palmas or Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The ferry has been named after Mount Teide (Taidia in Spanish), a volcano on the island of Tenerife in the Canarys.
