Rolls-Royce has announced that it has signed an agreement to provide 15 gas engines to Torghatten Nord AS to power five Multi Maritime designed LNG ferries operating between Bergen and Stord (Norway).

All of these engines are C26:33L9AGs – a generating set with nine cylinders in line. The engine is able to operate on variable speed to decrease emissions and fuel consumption. The C-gas engine has an operating speed of 1000 RPM and a power of 2430 kW.

Two of these vessels will be constructed in Norway at the VARD Brevik yard. The remaining three will be built in Turkey at the Tersan Shipyard. All of the vessels are expected to commence service in January 2019.

Kjell Harloff, Rolls-Royce, Vice President, Engines – Marine, said: “Since the introduction of our first marine gas engines 10 years ago, Rolls-Royce has delivered more than 700 gas engines on land and at sea accumulating over 25 million running hours of operating experience. We have proved that the Bergen lean-burn, pure gas, medium-speed engine range, combined with efficient hull designs, can help customers, like Torghatten Nord, cut their ships’ emissions and fuel bills significantly.”
