Engine supplier MAN Rollo has just announced that they will provide the crane vessel Werkendam with three LNG generator sets.

International marine and offshore contractor Van Oord is currently building the ship at Neptune Shipyards in Hardinxveld-Giessendam. It is the first LNG powered vessel for both the yard and Van Oord.

Karel Schuurman, Sales Manager Marine Engines at MAN Rollo, said: “We want to make a difference in the market for environmentally friendly applications. Our knowledge and experience in gas engines will certainly contribute to the acceptance of LNG in the maritime industry. Van Oord chose our LNG generator sets for the hybrid propulsion of the Werkendam. That is an acknowledgment of our leading role in this area. ”

Together, the three generator sets will provide a power supply of 1.425KW and an LNG storage tank of 38m³ will be placed on the rear deck.

This ensures enough fuel to sail and operate for two weeks without stopping to refuel, MAN Rollo said in its release.

The Werkendam is the first LNG powered ship to be delivered by Neptune.
