MAN Rollo informed it has developed three 480 ekW gas generator sets for the LNG-powered ferry Helgoland that recently entered service.
MAN Rollo supplied the gas generator sets to the Fassmer shipyard in Berne, Germany, where the ferry was built for shipping company Cassen Eils, the company revealed in a statement.
The ship provides a ferry service between the northern German city of Cuxhaven and the island of Helgoland in the North Sea all year round.
The vessel is 83 meters long, 12,6 meters wide and has a draught of 3,6 meters, and a capacity of more than 1.180 passengers, and will mainly operate on LNG using two 9-cylinder Wärtsilä 20DF medium-speed dual-fuel engines.
