Posted by Michelle Howard

MAN Cryo - MAN Energy Solutions' marine LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer - has announced that it will supply an LNG fuel-gas supply system to a Norwegian live-fish carrier ordered by Nordlaks, one of Norway's largest aquaculture companies.

The new vessel will be a sister to an identical vessel ordered during the summer of 2018 - again for Nordlaks - for which MAN Cryo also won the order to provide the fuel-supply system. The system forms part of an innovative, hybrid gas-battery propulsion solution - a first for the segment.
Designed by NSK in Norway, the sister vessels will be built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey. Tersan has, over the years, built a number of LNG-powered vessels and this will be the 5th since 2016 that is equipped with a marine fuel-gas system delivered by MAN Cryo.

MAN Cryo's scope of supply for each vessel covers:
2 × vertical vacuum insulated 146-m3 LNG tanks, each with 2 × redundant 'tank connecting spaces'
• 2 × BS100-GR bunker stations
• 2 × HEU 100 glycol-heat exchanger units.

Upon construction, the vessels will have a length of 84.25 m, a breadth of 19.0 m, and will be capable of transporting over 600 tons of live fish, particularly salmon and trout. The carriers are designed for operation at aquaculture facilities in more exposed waters and delivery of the latest vessel is expected during 2021.
