The conference was held on 23rd January 2014, with the Francisco project recognised for achieving the highest standards in the categories of technological innovation, project execution, market impact and risk taken.

The ferry has a capacity of 1000 passengers and 150 cars and is equipped with the latest technology and passenger comfort.
The ship is scheduled to make two daily journeys between Montevideo and Buenos Aires with a transit time of two hours fifteen minutes each way.
