Rolls-Royce to Propel Torghatten Nord’s New Ferries

UK-based engineering company Rolls-Royce has signed a deal to supply 15 gas engines to Norwegian ferry company Torghatten Nord AS.

The engines will power five Multi Maritime-designed LNG ferries operating between Bergen and Stord.

According to Kjell Harloff, Rolls-Royce, Vice President, Engines – Marine, “the Bergen lean-burn, pure gas, medium-speed engine range, combined with efficient hull designs, can help customers, like Torghatten Nord, cut their ships’ emissions and fuel bills significantly.”

All 15 engines are C26:33L9AGs, a generating set with nine cylinders in-line. The engine can operate on variable speed to reduce both fuel consumption and emissions. The C-gas engine has an operating speed of 1,000rpm and power of 2430kW.

Two of the vessels will be built at the VARD Brevik yard in Norway, while the other three will be built at the Tersan Shipyard in Turkey. The vessels are expected to enter service in January 2019.

Torghatten Nord currently operates 33 ferries and 10 express boats in Norway.
