MAN to power CLdN’s LNG RoRo vessels

Germany’s MAN Energy Solutions confirmed it has secured an order to provide its dual-fuel engines for two LNG-powered hybrid RoRo vessels recently ordered by Luxembourg-based shipping group CLdN.

Earlier this year, CLdN said it has placed the order for two 8,000 lane meter hybrid RoRo vessels at South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo.

Hyundai Mipo will deliver the ships worth about $267 million to the European short sea specialist in the first half of 2025.

MAN said in a statement on Wednesday it would provide its dual-fuel 6S60ME-GI engines for the two 234 meters long ships.

The two newbuildings will have a hybrid propulsion system with each featuring two ME-GI engines (2 × 11 MW) along with MAN’s proprietary exhaust gas reduction emissions system.

Both RoRo vessels will also have two 6 MW electric propulsion motors that will enable the ships to maintain a service speed of 16 – 17 knots in full-electric mode.

Additionally, each RoRo would feature 678 kWh batteries. While the vessels would still have emissions during in/out port maneuvering, shore connection would offer zero emissions in port, MAN said.

CLdN reports that, compared with its largest vessels currently in service, the new ships – the largest investment in its history – would further reduce carbon intensity by 40 percent while being NOx Tier III-compliant.

Last year, Hyundai Mipo delivered the first LNG-powered RoRo to CLdN. Hyundai Mipo said the vessel named Faustine was the first such ship built in Korea.

Earlier this year, CLdN also took delivery of the sister vessel, Seraphine. The firm said in a social media post about two weeks ago that the vessel had reached the port of Zeebrugge in Belgium.
