Swedish ferry operator Stena Line has selected Hamburg-based marine engine builder Caterpillar Marine to supply engines for its four 3100 LM RoPax ferries. 

Each ferry will be equipped with two MaK™ 12 M 43 C propulsion engines.

In addition to the engines and required gear boxes, Caterpillar will supply four controllable pitch propellers.

“The propellers have the unique ability to be put in full feathering position, enabling the vessel to operate with only one propeller in certain modes. This improves vessel flexibility and reduces operating costs while at the same time increases safety on board the vessel. The full feathering feature is entirely automatic and selectable via the control system,” Mattias Hansson, engineering manager at Caterpillar’s Marine Solution Center, said.

Featuring a length of 212 meters and a width of 27.8 meters, the ferries will have an accommodation space for 1,000 passengers, including 73 crew members. The ferries will be constructed at AVIC Weihai SY in China with Deltamarin as the design house.

Earlier this year, DNV GL signed a contract to provide classification services for Stena Line’s RoPax ferries.
