BV to class Canadian LNG-powered newbuilds

Bureau Veritas said it will class two innovative projects for gas-fuelled vessels to be built for Canadian owners in Turkish shipyards.

British Columbia-based Seaspan Ferries has chosen BV class for two hybrid LNG/diesel/battery-powered ro-ro cargo ferries which will be built at the Sedef yard in Turkey, BV said in a statement.

Quebec-based Transport Desgagnes, meanwhile, has chosen BV class for two 14,000 dwt gas-fuelled asphalt/product tankers to be built at Besiktas.

The 148.9 m Seaspan ferries are due for delivery in 2016 and will operate on Canada’s west coast, carrying up to 59 trailers at speeds of up to 16 knots propelled by azimuthing drives. Twin dual-fuel W9L 34DF generators will be able to burn LNG from one single 200 cbm Type C tank below the main deck and there will be a hybrid battery pack power supply for generating zero emissions energy at quay or during manoeuvring and for any low-load operation.

The Transport Desgagnes tankers will have two 300 cbm Type C LNG tanks on the deck  powering the dual-fuel ME 5RT Flex 50 DF main engine and two 6L20DF engines and one 8L20DF auxiliary engine and two 3000 kW boilers.
