Poland: Remontowa Shipbuilding Launches LNG-Fueled Ferry Lodingen

Remontowa Shipbuilding on May 11th 2012 held the launching ceremony for the last of four LNG-fueled ferries built for one of the biggest Norwegian Owners. During the cooperation the Owner has ordered construction of eight modern ferries of different propulsion, engine powers as well as range of served routes. In October 2011 the shipyard delivered first two diesel powered, double ended ferries.

The construction of the second series of Ro-Pax type ferries was completed in December 2011. Currently, all delivered ferries are serving public transport along Norwegian coast. The realization of contract for building four big, modern, gas powered car–passenger ferries began in May 2010.

These ferries will be operated in difficult weather conditions above the polar circle, in service for the local inhabitants, tourists and the industry. Operating in such conditions defines high demands to the vessels. The launched ferry “Lødingen”, like previous ones, will meet restrictive ecological rules regarding the emission of harmful substances to atmosphere which is very important feature.

Ferries will easily accommodate 390 passengers and 120 cars. The ships will be powered by one Gas Engine which will enable the vessel to reach service speed of 15 knots and maximum speed 19 knots.

Main Particulars:

Length o.a. 96.00 m

Breadth moulded 16.80 m

Depth moulded to main deck 5.50 m

Vessel’s concept and first phase of documentation was created as a result of cooperation Norwegian design office LMG and polish REMONTOWA Marine Design & Consulting Sp. z o.o. Optimizing of the hull was completed using specialized computer programs and modeling studies in Gdansk Ship Design and Research Centre – Ship Hydromechanics Division.
