CONVERSION

Innovative projects with great complexity

Get to know more about our conversion projects that focused on sustainability give them new life.

Ensure sustainability to innovation.

The Naval industry is walking towards decarbonisation and fuel change to a more efficient and sustainable one.
Liquefied natural gas is a more economical solution, which reduces operational costs and produces less pollution emissions.

Length

187 metres

Breadth

26 metres

Speed

23 knots

DWT

7 000 tonnes

Capacity

Passengers - 1000
Vehicles - 480

Project details

Installation and assembly of a liquefied natural gas storage tank with a 425 m3 capacity, the adaptation of the two main engines and sensors for monitoring the consumption and CO₂ emissions in real-time.

The modernisation of this vessel also involves the adoption of smart ship technology, with the installation of wi-fi, WhatsApp, Smart TV and access to cabins through a QR code.

This project allows the ship to sail on both diesel and liquefied natural gas and at a lower environmental impact, with a 30% reduction in CO₂ emissions, giving it an autonomy of over 1,000 nautical miles.
