Consortium of Cryonorm and Wärtsilä successful in LNG fuel systems for IWW barges

Hulls for the 361-foot (110-meter) barges are under construction at the Veka Centromost yard in Poland, with final outfitting to be carried out by Veka at Werkendam. Wärtsilä delivers the engines and LNGpac for all 15 barges, their six-cylinder W20 Dual Fuel Engines will run on 95% to 98% LNG fuel with a small proportion of diesel used for ignition. A staggered delivery of the barges is expected to take place between late-2016 and mid-2018.
