Germany's LNG ferry begins service

Germany’s first newbuild LNG-powered passenger ferry took on its maiden voyage from Cuxhaven to the island of Helgoland on Friday. 

According to the owner Reederei Cassen Eils, the ferry named Helgoland, departed on Friday following the christening ceremony at the “Alte Liebe” pier in the port of Cuxhaven.

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, and will mainly operate on LNG using two 9-cylinder Wärtsilä 20DF medium-speed dual-fuel engines.

The ship has been built at the Fassmer shipyard in Germany with a cost of around EUR 31,5 million. The EU provided 4.17 million for the project under its TEN-T programme.

Finnish engine manufacturer Wärtsilä supplied the propulsion machinery and its LNGPac fuel bunkering and gas supply system.
