Wallenius SOL picks MAN Cryo Fuel Gas Engines for new Icebreaking RoRo’s.
MAN Energy Solutions has also been selected to supply 2 × 9L28/32DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines to each vessel.
The two LNG-fueled RoRos are being built at Yantai Raffles shipyard in China. Upon completion, the vessels will be the largest to ever meet Finnish/Swedish ice class 1A Super standard, ensuring year-round service in the frozen Gulf of Bothnia.
The 242-meter newbuilds will have a sailing speed of 20 knots and a capacity of 5,800 lane meters. Delivery of the vessels is scheduled for 2021 and the order includes an option for two further vessels.
“These RoRos will operate in a sensitive, sulphur-emission-control area in harsh winter conditions where a reliable LNG fuel-gas supply system is of the utmost importance.
