MAN Energy Solutions’ marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer, MAN Cryo, has been contracted to supply an LNG fuel-gas supply system for a live-fish carrier ordered by Nordlaks, one of Norway’s largest aquaculture companies.

The new vessel will be a sister to an identical vessel ordered by Nordlaks during the summer of 2018 for which MAN Cryo also won the order to provide the fuel-supply system.

The system forms part of an innovative, hybrid gas-battery propulsion solution – a first for the segment, MAN Energy Solutions said in its statement.

Designed by NSK in Norway, the sister vessels will be built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey.

Louise Andersson, Head of MAN Cryo, said, “These orders mark our entry into a new marine segment with its own unique demands.”

MAN Cryo’s scope of supply for each vessel covers, 2 vertical vacuum insulated 146-cbm LNG tanks, each with 2 redundant tank connecting spaces, 2 BS100-GR bunker stations and 2 HEU 100 glycol-heat exchanger units.

Upon construction, the vessels will have a length of 84.25 meters, a breadth of 19.0 meters, and will be capable of transporting over 600 tons of live fish, particularly salmon and trout.

The carriers are designed for operation at aquaculture facilities in more exposed waters and delivery of the latest vessel is expected during 2021.
