Wärtsilä Provides LNG Package for New Ferry

By Maritime Reporter & Engineering News

Wärtsilä will provide a complete dual-fuel propulsion and LNG equipment package for a new passenger ferry being built for Reederei Cassen Eils GmbH. The contract was signed with the shipyard Fr. Fassmer GmbH. The new ferry will operate between Cuxhaven and the island of Helgoland in Germany. This route will take it close to the Lower Saxon Wadden Sea national park, an ecologically sensitive UNESCO World Heritage listed area in the south-eastern part of the North Sea. Because of the need to minimize exhaust gas emissions in this area, the ferry will operate primarily on LNG using two nine-cylinder Wärtsilä 20DF medium-speed dual-fuel engines.
