LNG-powered hopper barge set for sea trials

Foxhol, The Netherlands-based Shipyard Constructions Hoogezand Nieuwbouw (SCHN) said the LNG-powered hopper barge named “greenports 1″ is set for sea trials. 

In a statement, following the vessel’s launch in March, bremenports said it is presumably the first LNG-powered working vessel at a European seaport. It will be used to carry silt dredged from the harbour basins in Bremerhaven, Germany to the disposal facility in Bremen-Seehausen.

The vessel has a cargo area measuring 840 cubic meters in capacity and has two LNG tanks each with a capacity to hold 6.5 cubic meters of the chilled gas that will power two Scania gas engines with a power output of 300 kw each.

SCHN said on Wednesday the vessel has entered the completion phase and will take on sea trial during the next week. Once the sea trials are completed the LNG-powered hopper barge will sail to Bremerhaven.
