She materializes several years of cooperation with Brittany Ferries (BAI).

The“Dual-Fuel” engines using LNG as the main source of energy will cut out her SOx emissions and will reduce her NOx emissions by 80% CO2 by 20%.

This contract represents about 2.6 million working hours for STX France and its sub-contractors. Production is scheduled to start at the beginning of 2015. It will be enforced after settlement of the financing issues.
