MAN said on Tuesday that the order covered the provision of two 35/44DF dual-fuel engines, fuel gas-supply systems, and the main electric systems, including batteries.

The company will provide the solutions in association with Aspin Kemp & Associates, in which it has a 40 percent stake. AKA specializes in power supply, energy management, and drive systems for marine and industrial applications.

Also, fuel-gas specialist MAN Cryo was charged with supplying the new ferries’ fuel gas-supply system.

It is worth noting that for each ship the company will supply 2 Diesel/Gas-electric propulsion systems, 1 MAN Cryo Fuel Gas Supply System including a 209-cbm tank, 1 AKA main electrical system, 1 AKA 2-MWh energy storage system and 1 AKA low voltage distribution system.
