MAN Diesel & Turbo’s unit MAN Cryo signed a contract with the Vard Shipyard Group in Norway to deliver a fuel-gas supply system (FGSS) for two ferries being built for Torghatten Nord.

Each ferry will be equipped with a gas-electric, hybrid-propulsion system, MAN D&T said, adding that the LNG supply system consists of a 175-cbm vacuum-insulated storage tank, with auxiliary equipment including an LNG vaporizer, a pressure build-up unit and a bunker station.

The MAN Cryo system will supply gas to the engines powering each ferry and is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2018.

The equipment will be installed aboard two double-ended RoPax ferries that will operate between Halhjem and Sandvikvåg, south of Bergen in Southeast Norway. The 134-m long and 21-m wide ferries will have identical capacities of up to 180 cars and 550 passengers.

The 134-m long and 21-m wide ferries will have identical capacities of up to 180 cars and 550 passengers and have been designed by the Norwegian ship designer Multi-Maritime.
