LMG Marin signs a Design Contract for two Double Ended Diesel Electric Hybrid ferries for Norled built at Remontowa Shipyard

LMG Marin have been awarded for the design of two battery-plug-in double ended ferries for the Festøya-Solvåg connection. The two vessels, with a capacity of 296 passengers and 120 personal cars will feature innovative solutions for environmentally friendly operation, with great focus on ensuring the lowest possible energy consumption. The vessels will be delivered in the Fourth Quarter of 2019. The LMG Marin’s scope of work for this project covers the complete Class documentation.

On 11th July 2018 Remontowa Shipbuilding signed a contract for the construction of two Double Ended Diesel Electric Hybrid ferries for Norled, based on the LMG Marin design LMG 120-DEH.

The new ferries will be equipped with an innovative and highly efficient Diesel Electric Hybrid system. In normal operation the entire required power will be taken from two battery packs installed on board. The batteries will be recharged from the land grid during the vessels stay at quay which will typically be abt. 11 minutes. A fast charging solution of pantograph or plug-in type will therefore be used in order to ensure that the required state of charge of the batteries is maintained. The shore charging system will be integrated with an automatic mooring system (of vacuum or magnetic type) holding the ferries when at quay and giving the “green light” for the charging process to start. The intention is to use the generating sets that the vessels will be equipped with (running on 100% Biodiesel), only in case of emergency. The electric system will be, however, prepared to operate them alongside batteries, e.g. in peak shaving mode.

The new ferries will service the Festøya-Solavågen connection, close to Ålesund in Norway. They will be 114,4m long, 17,7m wide and capable of taking on board up to 120 personal cars and 296 passengers. The equipment on board will be selected based on maximum efficiency criteria. A good example are the thrusters which will be pulling type units with integrated Permanent Magnet motors ensuring high efficiency even at very low loads.

The ferries will be built according to the LMG 120-DEH design developed by LMG Marin who will also deliver the complete Class documentation. The design LMG 120-DEH features many energy efficient solutions including general use of heat recovery, full LED lighting, highly efficiency electric power transmission, demand-dependent HVAC system, low friction hull paint and lightweight construction.

The LMG 120-DEH design (with registered design protection) is also characterized by an innovative vehicle deck and accommodation arrangement that allows for fast and safe vehicle loading, significant energy savings and improved safety for crew and passengers.

New contract for the construction of two ferries

On 11th July 2018 Remontowa Shipbuilding signed a contract for the construction of two Double Ended Diesel Electric Hybrid ferries for Norled (yard nos. B619/1-2).

Norled is one of the leading Norwegian ferry operators. The company was formerly known as Tide Sjø and has been conducting its activities under the current name since 2012. Norled’s fleet consists of abt. 80 ferries of which 6 have been built at Remontowa Shipbuilding. Among these are Ryfylke and Hardanger, both delivered in 2013, which are the first two vessels in the world not carrying Diesel at all – the main fuel is LNG while CNG (stored in bottles on the open deck) is used in case of emergency.

The new ferries will mark yet another step on Norled’s path towards green future. They will be equipped with an innovative and highly efficient Diesel Electric Hybrid system. In normal operation the entire required power will be taken from two battery packs installed on board. The batteries will be recharged from the land grid during the vessels stay at quay which will typically be abt. 11 minutes. A fast charging solution of pantograph or plug-in type will therefore be used in order to ensure that the required state of charge of the batteries is maintained. The shore charging system will be integrated with an automatic mooring system (of vacuum or magnetic type) holding the ferries when at quay and giving the “green light” for the charging process to start. The intention is to use the generating sets that the vessels will be equipped with (running on 100% Biodiesel), only in case of emergency. The electric system will be, however, prepared to operate them alongside batteries, e.g. in peak shaving mode.

The new ferries will service the Festøya-Solavågen connection. They will be 114,4m long, 17,7m wide and capable of taking on board up to 120 personal cars and 296 passengers. The equipment on board will be selected based on maximum efficiency criteria. A good example are the thrusters which will be pulling type units with integrated Permanent Magnet motors ensuring high efficiency even at very low loads.

The ferries will be built according to LMG 120-DEH design developed by LMG Marin who will also deliver the complete Class documentation. They will comply with the rules and regulations of DNVGL and Norwegian Maritime Administration and will be delivered in the Fourth Quarter of 2019.

With this order, coming from a returning Customer, Remontowa Shipbuilding proves its reliability, experience and strong position in the RoPax ferry market – qualities that are additionally supported by the impressive number of 23 ferries delivered over the last decade (with 2 more being currently under construction).

Norled tenker nytt med å heve bildekket midtskips slik at det blir plass til passasjersalong og lugarer på hovedekket i fergas fulle bredde.

Inngang på samme niva som bildekket i kvar ende av ferga, mens midtskips blir det nedgang via trapper

Norled confirms vessel no. 3 and 4 of LMG 120-DEH design

On 1st August 2018 Norled has announced the contract for the construction of two Double Ended Diesel Electric Hybrid ferries based on the LMG 120-DEH design to be built at Remontowa Shipyard. These two sister ships comes in addition to the two first units for which the shipbuilding contract was signed in July.

The ferries will be built according to the innovative LMG 120-DEH design developed by LMG Marin who will deliver the complete Class documentation. The design LMG 120-DEH features many energy efficient solutions including general use of heat recovery, full LED lighting, highly efficiency electric power transmission, demand-dependent HVAC system, low resistance hull design and weight optimized construction.

The LMG 120-DEH design (with registered design protection) is also characterized by an innovative vehicle deck and accommodation arrangement that allows for fast and safe vehicle loading, significant energy savings and improved safety for crew and passengers.

These two sister ships will operate on the Mannheller-Fodnes connection and, as compared to the two first ones intended for the Festøya-Solavågen connection, will feature two modifications. Since the Mannheller-Fodnes route is shorter, the capacity of the battery pack will be reduced by approx. 20%. At the same time, the vessels will be certified to carry more passengers with the maximum being 395 persons.

Once all four LMG 120-DEH ferries are delivered, the number of LMG Marin designed ferries in the modern Norled fleet will amount a total 10 units. This new contract is also another chapter in the fruitful cooperation between LMG Marin and Remontowa Shipbuilding with a total of 18 ferries based on LMG Marin design that have been built by Remontowa Shipbuilding over the last decade.

Et bra design, men kanskje ikke så nytenkende, det minner jo mye om Askøyfergene. Spesielt de som var bygget på -60 tallet, før de fikk to bildekk. MF "Askøy" (1965) og MF "Kleppestø"(1968). http://www.fjordfaehren.de/no_f/askoy_stein.jpg
