Torghatten Nord Names LNG Supplier for Ferry Fleet

Monday, January 03, 2011

Barents NaturGass AS reportedly won a contract to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Torghatten Nord AS for seven new LNG ferries in one of Norway’s busiest waterways, according to a report on www.ngvglobal.com. The contract takes into consideration the full environmental profile of fuel supply and stipulates that trucks delivering fuel to depots must also be LNG-powered. Torghatten Nord signed the largest ferry contract in Norway, to a value of $238m, for ferry traffic across the Western area for 10 years from 2013. The contract requires the construction of four new LNG-powered ferries as well as the conversion of three existing vessels. The first ferry comes in the second quarter of 2012.

The new 93m-long LNG-powered ferries will have capacity to carry 390 passengers and 120 cars at service speeds between 12 and 19 knots. They will be built at the Remontowa shipyard in Gdansk, Poland.
