Ingeteam has signed a contract with Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore (China) for the delivery of the engineering, production, commissioning and sea trials of the hybrid electric propulsion system for two icebreaking Ro-Ro Ships, owned by Sweden’s Wallenius SOL.
The 241.7 m vessels will be equipped with two Type C LNG tanks, have a sailing speed of 20 knots and a capacity of 5800 lane meters. They will be the world’s largest LNG powered, and world largest Ice Class, Ro-Ro NBs, built to meet Finnish-Swedish Ice Class 1A Super and winterisation standards, deployed for European shipping routes.
These Ro-Ros will operate in a sensitive, sulfur-emission-control area (ECA) in harsh winter conditions where a reliable LNG fuel-gas supply system is of the utmost importance. During port calls, the vessels will run on green electricity from shore connections or LNG.
