Turkey-based Tersan Shipyard is building two new LNG-fueled cruise vessels for Norwegian shipowner Havila Kystruten, expected to operate the historic coastal voyage between Bergen and Kirkenes, along the western coastline of Norway, stopping at 34 ports along the route.
LNG fueled vessels
In the past, the Luxembourg-based company CLdN Ro-Ro, decided to build the world’s biggest short-sea ro-ro vessels. Celine, after one year of operating, has fully met her owner’s expectations. The former, along with sister-vessel Delphine, incorporate high technology from other vessel types and are LNG-ready.
In Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque the work started on the conversion of the trailing suction hopper dredger “Samuel de Champlain” from diesel-electric propulsion to dual-fuel capability combining MGO and LNG. The vessel is expected to be operational by December 2018, and is supported by the EU.
Under its ‘Connecting Europe Facility’ program, the European Commission has funded a project aimed at paving the way for LNG as fuel to trucks and inland waterway vessels in Germany. Berlin-based Liquind announced it will start construction of ten LNG stations after an EU grant of 3.3 million euros.
