February 2017 International 17 Pride ahoy TACT Facilities P&O Ferries are spending £8.5 million on upgrading the two ships on its Hull- Zeebrugge route in a move which guarantees the future of the combined tourist and freight service into the next decade. The Pride of York and the Pride of Bruges – two 32,000 ton sister vessels which can carry up to 880 passengers on their overnight sailings to and from the continent – will benefit from the major investment in their physical infrastructure and passenger areas. The objective is to provide first class eating, drinking and shopping areas for freight customers and tourist passengers to enjoy during the 12 hour voyage. P&O Ferries is a leading pan- European ferry and logistics company, sailing on eight major routes between Britain, France, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Holland and Belgium. The company operates 20 vessels which carry more than 10 million passengers, 1.6 million cars and 2.2 million freight units every year. Together with its logistics division, P&O Ferrymasters, the company also operates integrated road and rail links to countries across the continent including Italy, Poland and Romania. A P&O Ferrymasters-owned rail terminal in the northern Romanian city of Oradea, which will facilitate the onward movement of goods to Britain from the Silk Road, became operational in 2016. www.poferries.com SPONSORED COLUMN Management: a unique solution for every building!
