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.

Type

Ro-Ro Passenger

Year of conversion

2020

Length

187 metres

Breadth

26 metres

Speed

23 knots

DWT

7 000 tonnes

Capacity

Passengers - 1000
Vehicles - 480

Project details

Installation and mounting of a LNG tank with 160 tonnes and 425 m3 of capacity; retrofit of the two main engines and sensors for monitoring the consumptions and emissions in real time.

Modernisation of this vessel included the adoption of “smart ship” technology, with the installation of a Wi-Fi network, WhatsApp, Smart TV and access to cabins by QR code.

This project allows the vessel to navigate both on fuel and liquefied natural gas, which creates a minor environmental impact, with a 30% reduction of CO2, endowing it with an autonomy of more than one thousand nautical miles.
