Delivery of Helgoland LNG ferry delayed

Delivery of Helgoland LNG ferry delayed

Germany-based shipbuilder Fassmer said that the delivery of the new LNG-powered ferry being built for Reederei Cassen Eils has been postponed to the second half of October.

Problems with the complex LNG technology being installed in the new ferry, and the time-consuming approval procedures for some of the prototype equipment used onboard the vessel were among the main reasons of the delay, according to a statement by Fassmer.

Germany’s first passenger ferry with a dual-fuel propulsion system was originally scheduled for delivery in June.

The vessel is 83 meters long, 12,6 meters wide and has a draught of 3,6 meters, and a capacity of more than 1.180 passengers.

It will operate between Cuxhaven and the island of Helgoland in Germany.

The construction of the LNG-powered ferry will cost about EUR 31 million. The EU is providing EUR 4.17 million for the project under its TEN-T programme.
