Brodosplit Books Two, Croatia

Brodosplit shipyard, Croatia, has signed a contract for the construction of two multi-purpose container vessels for shipping company “Brodosplit-Plovidba”.

The special feature of the project is that the ships will use LNG fuel (liquefied natural gas). The vessels will have a low speed 2 stroke “dual fuel” (LNG/HFO) engines that have higher efficiency (lower energy) and work at lower rpm (low speed engines), resulting in lower maintenance costs and longer life span.

The boxships will have four to five times lower cost per mile than the other ships of this class. Due to more efficient consumption and superb efficiency, investment in the 2 stroke “dual fuel” engines will be paid out after two to three years of exploitation.

Extremely important in this project is that the engines will be made by the Brodosplit diesel engine factory, under the license of the MAN.

The steel cutting ceremony for the first vessel is scheduled for for Q3 of 2014.
