Pasha Hawaii reports that factory acceptance testing (FAT) of the dual-fueled, MAN Diesel & Turbo ME-GI main engine has been completed for the M/V George III, the first of two 774-ft., U.S. Jones Act, LNG-fueled containerships being built at Keppel AmFELS in Brownsville, TX. The two ‘Ohana Class ves-sels will join the Pasha Hawaii fleet, which provides service to the Hawaii/Mainland trade lane.

Each ship will carry 2,525 TEUs at a sailing speed of 23 knots. Delivery of the vessels is expected in 2020.

The 7S80ME-GI Mk 9.5 main engine will meet Tier III emission standards by use of an Exhaust Gas Re-circulation system. Successful testing of the three MAN 6L35/44DF GenSets were also recently com-pleted. Both the main and auxiliary engines for the M/V George III were tested on LNG and diesel fuel, as the containerships will operate fully on LNG from day one in service.
