Cryonorm receives order to supply the LNG fuel system on board Baleària ferry Abel Matutes

The order consists of a turn-key supply of a Marine LNG fuel system 30m3-type C, installed on deck 8. Gas Natural Fenosa and Cryonorm reached an agreement to partner in this important project.

"For us this is the first time we will install a LNG system on a passenger ferry, this order proves we are able to offer competitive and safe systems for this market segment as well" says Jos Glorie, business development director at Cryonorm Systems.

Delivery of the LNG System is scheduled mid 2015.

Gas Natural and Spanish ferry operator Baleària will install the first natural gas engine for passenger vessels in Spain. This system will not be used for the ship' propulsion but for power generation once moored in the port. Using natural gas for power generation will result in emission reduction and decrease of fuel costs.
