MAN Diesel & Turbo To Supply Eight Engines To Norwegian Shipbuilder
MAN Diesel & Turbo received an order from Bergen Group Fosen, a Norwegian shipbuilder in Rissa, Norway, for eight 10L32/44CR main engines. The order also includes six L21/31 auxiliary generating sets and four RENK gearboxes for two ferries that will be operated by Fjord Line Danmark A/S, the Danish subsidiary of Bergen Group Fosen.
Fjord Line placed an order with Bergen Group Fosen earlier this year for two modern cruise ferries capable of carrying up to 1500 passengers and 600 vehicles. The vessels will offer daily sails between Norway and Denmark.
The two ferries will be delivered to Fjord Line in 2012. Stocznia Gdansk, a partner of Bergen Group Fosen, will construct the hulls, while Bergen Group will handle final completion, assembly and interior work.
