Wartsila to power Australian LNG-fueled RoRo

Finland’s Wartsila said on Wednesday it has secured a contract from German shipbuilder FSG to supply tech for one LNG-fueled RoRo ordered by Australian operator SeaRoad Shipping.

SeaRoad and FSG revealed this shipbuilding deal worth more than 100 million euros ($117 million) in September last year.

Wartsila said it has booked the orders in the first quarter of this year.

Under the deal, the tech firm will supply main and auxiliary engines, fuel storage tanks, gas handling equipment and electrical systems for the 210 meters long LNG-powered ferry.

The vessel will have two Wartsila 46DF dual-fuel main engines and three 20DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines.

Also, the fuel gas handling system and LNG tanks are designed with the gas valve units integrated into the tank connection space, according to Wartsila.

Wartsila said it would deliver almost every electrical system on board, including bridge consoles, redundant dual-gyro compass systems, nautical sensors, as well as external communication systems.

The firm said that electrical installation would start this year, while it would deliver the bulk of its equipment to the yard during the first half of 2023.

FSG expects to complete the LNG-powered ship by the end of 2023.

The vessel will have 3,987 lane meters for various freight units and will sail on Bass Strait, between Melbourne, Victoria and Devonport on the Australian island state of Tasmania.
