MAN Cryo – MAN Diesel & Turbo’s marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer – has signed a contract with Sefine Shipyard in Turkey to deliver a marine LNG fuel-gas supply system (FGSS) to an Italian ferry.
 
The LNG supply system consists of a 150 m3 vacuum-insulated storage tank, with auxiliary equipment, including an LNG vaporizer, pressure build-up unit, bunker station and heat exchanger.
 
The MAN Cryo system will supply gas to the ferry´s three dual-fuel propulsion engines and is scheduled for delivery in November 2017. The vessel will be the first of its kind with LNG propulsion.
 
The equipment will be installed aboard a double-ended RoPax ferry, designed by LMG Marin, for Italian shipowner, Caronte & Tourist, and will primarily operate on the strait of Messina between Villa San Giovanni – the main access point to Sicily from the Italian mainland – and the city of Messina.
 
The 133-m long and 21.5-m wide ferry will have a capacity of up to 290 cars on two vehicle decks, and 1,500 passengers.
