Hamworthy To Install Fuel Systems On Ferries
Hamworthy has signed a contract to install liquefied natural gas storage tanks and fuel systems onboard four gas-powered ferries, which will be constructed at the Remontowa Shipyard in Gdansk, Poland, for delivery in the second half of 2012.
The ships, which will be delivered to ship owner Torghatten Nord AS, will serve two routes across Vestfjorden in Lofoten in the north of Norway. Both routes are known for their harsh operating conditions.
Hamworthy Oil & Gas Systems will deliver the fuel gas systems, built in Hanjung Shipyard, China, to Rolls-Royce, which received the contract for complete propulsion systems. Each ship will feature 150 m³ capacity storage tanks designed by Hamworthy, the company said.
