Wärtsilä won a contract to supply equipments for Bore
Wärtsilä announced that it will supply the main equipment for three liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueled short-sea Ro-Lo vessels to be operated by Finland based Bore Ltd., an affiliate of the Dutch Spliethoff Group.
Wärtsilä has worked with both the owner and naval architects to develop a vessel optimised integrated LNG system. As a result, it has been possible to locate a 250 cbm Wärtsilä LNGPac storage and supply system below deck without compromising the cargo capacity. The ships have been ordered and are being built at the WuHu Shipyard in China.
The 120-meter-long ships will be chartered to Finnish forestry company UPM and will operate in the Baltic and North Seas. The first vessel is scheduled for delivery in mid-2021.
The newbuilds will be equipped with a 250 cbm LNGPac storage and supply system. In addition, the ships will be propelled by a Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel engine driving a controlled pitch propeller (CPP) at variable speed. What is more, the vessels will each be equipped with technologies to enable accurately synchronized engine speed and propeller pitch.
