ABEL MATUTES Is Balearia’s Second Ferry To Get LNG Power

The conversion of ABEL MATUTES into an LNG-powered ferry has reached one of the key phases of the process: the incorporation of two gas tanks of 178m3.

The re-engining is done in Valencia. The job consists in changing its two main engines MAK 9M 43 C into dual-fuel MAK engines 9M 46 DF.

By 2021, Balearia wants to have nine of its ships to run on LNG.

ABEL MATUTES comes after NAPOLES, and will be followed by MARTIN I SOLER, BAHAMA MAMA, SICILIA and HEDY LAMARR (the former VISEMAR ONE).
