Three Dual Fuel Engines for One of Europe’s Largest Ferries

Spain’s Baleària and the LaNaval shipyard are talking up plans for a liquefied natural gas-fueled ferry, to be among the largest in Europe, with a length of 762 feet (232.2 meters), to be operational in 2019. The vessel will cost an estimated 175 million euros ($191 million U.S. at current rates).

LaNaval expects to build a large, 175-million-euro LNG-fueled ferry for Baleària, to enter operation in 2019.

LaNaval expects to build a large, 175-million-euro LNG-fueled ferry for Baleària, to enter operation in 2019.

The 1,600-passenger, 340-vehicle ferry will have three dual fuel engines and be capable of speeds up to 23 knots. It will have an advanced hull design to reduce power needs, and high efficiency propellers and rudder, LED lighting and “solar panels to power all onboard services.”

“Among the services for passengers,” said LaNaval, will be “two restaurants, four bars (one outside), a playground, two multipurpose theaters, one outside and one inside, two levels up to 700 people each, two pools and two hot tubs, gym, hairdresser and lounge, library, cinema…”

A Second Large LNG Ferry Possible Too

“The signing of the contract, after months of working together, confirms our strategy of working closely with our customers from the earliest conceptual stages,” LaNaval managing director Jose Ignacio Irasuegui said in his firm’s announcement.

“It’s a milestone that consolidates LaNaval’s positioning in the passenger ship market and, in general, in the design and construction of ships with high technological content,” Irasuegui said.

“We are convinced that this agreement will be the start of a long-term relationship between LaNaval and Baleària, one of Europe’s largest shipping companies in the field of freight and passenger transport.”

Baleària is to decide in the coming months whether to build a second new large ferry, LaNaval says.
