LaNaval to Build Ferry Powered by Diesel-Oil or Natural Gas

LaNaval Shipyard in Spain received a contract to design and build a new ferry for the Dutch company Royal N.V. Texels Eigen Stoomboot Onderneming (TESO), which will be powered by diesel-oil or alternatively Natural Gas, being helped also by electric batteries that will form an integral part of the advance energy management system.

The ferry, which will be named “Texelstroom” is a new generation vessel for the transportation of up to 1,750 persons and 350 vehicles. Furthermore, she will have over 700 square meters of solar panels providing some independence from conventional fossil fuels. The design of the Texelstroom was supported by the I.transfer program for sustainable ferry travel, part of the EU Inter-regional initiative.

With the agreement for this newbuilding, workload of approx. 600,000 working hours is assured for the incoming 2 next year time and the supply of materials and equipment, with special relevance in LaNaval’s geographical area, of several million euro value.
