NORDLAKS FISH CARRIER OPTS FOR LNG FUEL

Friday, June 7, 2019 

MAN Cryo, MAN Energy Solutions’ marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer, is to deliver an LNG fuel-gas supply system to a Norwegian live-fish carrier ordered by Nordlaks, one of Norway’s largest aquaculture companies.

The new vessel will be a sister to an identical vessel ordered during the summer of 2018 – again for Nordlaks – for which MAN Cryo also won the order to provide the fuel-supply system. The system forms part of an innovative, hybrid gas-battery propulsion solution – a first for the segment.

Designed by NSK in Norway, the sister vessels will be built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey. Tersan has, over the years, built a number of LNG-powered vessels and this will be the 5th since 2016 that is equipped with a marine fuel-gas system delivered by MAN Cryo. 

Louise Andersson, Head of MAN Cryo, said: “These orders mark our entry into a new marine segment with its own unique demands. Nordlaks’ interest in exploiting sustainable technology fits seamlessly with our ambition to become a leading supplier within sectors where there is a growing demand for LNG-fuelled solutions. We are very pleased with this order from Tersan and look forward to continuing our cooperation with such a valued customer.”

MAN Cryo’s scope of supply for each vessel included two vertical vacuum insulated 146m3 LNG tanks, each with 2 × redundant tank connecting spaces; a pair of BS100-GR bunker stations; and twin HEU 100 glycol-heat exchanger units.

Upon construction, the vessels will have a length of 84.25m, a breadth of 19m, and will be capable of transporting over 600t of live fish, particularly salmon and trout. The carriers are designed for operation at aquaculture facilities in more exposed waters and delivery of the latest vessel is expected during 2021.
