MAN to supply LNG fuel-gas system for LoLo newbuild

MAN Energy Solutions’ marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer has been contracted to supply an LNG fuel-gas supply system for Norwegian shipowner, Egil Ulvan Rederi newbuild.

MAN informed the LNG fuel-gas system will be supplied for a ‘multipurpose palletized cargo and refrigerated vessel, also known as a LoLo (Lift-on/Lift-off).

The vessel is designed by a Norwegian designer company, Multi Maritime. The MM85CC design will be built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey.

This will be the sixth such vessel since 2016 that Tersan Shipyard will outfit with a marine fuel-gas system delivered by MAN Cryo.

The newbuild is scheduled for delivery in late 2020, MAN Energy Solutions said.

MAN Cryo’s scope of supply for the vessel covers a vertical, vacuum-insulated 364-cbm LNG tank, a complex tank-connection space with two redundant LNG supply trains, based on both a pump and a pressure-build-up unit, an LNG cold-recovery evaporator and an integrated bunker station (BS100-GR).

Upon construction, the 3,500 dwt-vessel will have a length of 86 meters and breadth of 19.5 meters and will service the round trip between Tromsø in northern Norway to Østfold in the southeast.

The vessel is a multipurpose design with reefer capacity, a refrigerated hold and elevators for palletized goods, as well as the capability to discharge fish food at fish farms along its route.
