MAN Rollo has announced that it will provide the crane vessel Werkendam with three LNG generator sets.
Van Oord is currently building the ship at Neptune Shipyards in Hardinxveld-Giessendam, the Netherlands. It is the first LNG-powered vessel for both the yard and Van Oord.
The three generator sets will provide a power supply of 1.425 kW. A 38 m3 LNG storage will be placed on the rear deck.
The Werkendam is the first LNG-powered ship to be delivered by Neptune.
Michiel Buné, Project Manager at Neptune Shipyards, said: "This new propulsion created new challenges especially in terms of space because of the LNG tank and the additional safety features (emergency shutdown system). Together with MAN Rollo we've been able to solve these issues effectively."
MAN Rollo has previously provided three identical LNG generator sets for the Helgoland ferry operated by Cassen Eils. The ferry has been in service for almost 1.5 years.
