Kongsberg Maritime will supply a power and propulsion system for Egil Ulvan Rederi’s new LNG-powered multi-purpose cargo vessel.
Kongsberg said that the propulsion system featured a Bergen B36:45L6PG gas engine and LNG control and safety system.
The propulsion system for the vessel, which is of an MM85CC LNG Multi Maritime design, also has a Promas controllable pitch propeller and rudder system and a battery pack to enable periods of emission-free operation in ports and environmentally sensitive areas.
The 3,500-dwt vessel is currently under construction at Tersan Shipyard, Turkey, for Norwegian ship owner Egil Ulvan Rederi. The vessel is due to be delivered to the Trondheim-based owner, in late 2020.
The new vessel will trade a roundtrip route serving the Norwegian coast from Østfold to Tromsø and will among others have reefer capacity and capability to discharge feed to fish farms.
The Kongsberg Maritime scope of supply also includes twin tunnel thrusters, steering gear, and deck machinery.
