JANUARY 30, 2017 — MAN Cryo – MAN Diesel & Turbo’s marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer – has signed a contract with Sefine Shipyard in Turkey to deliver a marine LNG fuel-gas supply system (FGSS) for the large double ended ferry it is building for Italian owner Caronte & Tourist (see earlier story).
The LNG supply system consists of a 150 cu.m vacuum-insulated storage tank, with auxiliary equipment, including an LNG vaporizer, pressure build-up unit, bunker station and heat exchanger.
The MAN Cryo system will supply gas to the ferry's three dual-fuel propulsion engines and is scheduled for delivery in November 2017. The vessel will be the first of its kind with LNG propulsion.
The 133-m long and 21.5-m wide ferry will have a capacity of up to 290 cars on two vehicle decks, and 1,500 passengers.
MAN Cryo develops efficient and economical solutions for demanding marine applications in the form of cryogenic equipment for marine fuel-gas systems as well as for offshore and onshore bunkering systems.
MAN Diesel & Turbo acquired the former Cryo AB in 2016. Situated in Gothenburg, Sweden, MAN Cryo is one of the world´s leading manufacturers of cryogenic equipment for the storage, distribution and handling of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
MAN Cryo provides comprehensive aftermarket services in association with MAN PrimeServ, MAN Diesel & Turbo’s after-sales division.
