Cryonorm to Supply Marine LNG Fuel System for the ‘Ecodelta’
The Port of Rotterdam is planning to put a liquefied-natural gas-fueled dredger dubbed Ecodelta to work in 2018. The 440-foot (134-meter) ship is being built by the Dutch yard Barkmeijer.
“The LNG-powered vessel will replace an old dredger as a part of a new maintenance contract signed between the port and Van der Kamp for keeping the harbors in Rotterdam in right depth until 2023,” says a release from Cryonorm, which is supplying the LNG fuel system.
In addition to Barkmeijer, the Conoship design is being executed by companies including Engie Services West – Cryonorm’s customer for the vessel’s fuel system.
Lots of Onboard LNG
Cryonorm will supply a 325-cubic-meter (85,850-gallon) LNG tank for Ecodelta. “It’s a huge diameter tank,” says Cryonorm business development director Jos Glorie, measuring some 7.4 meters in diameter and 11.5 meters in length (24.3 across and 37.7 feet long).
Ecodelta will be powered by four main DZD LNG-diesel dual fuel engines from ABC/Anglo Belgian Corp, with a Scania auxiliary genset.
