The shipping companies Baleària and Fred. Olsen Express will incorporate the first ferry powered by dual gas engines on the routes that operate between Huelva and the Canary Islands, starting next Sunday March 24, at the departure of 20h from the port of Huelva.
The ro-pax NAPOLES has returned from the shipyard in Gibraltar after having received a new dual-fuel LNG engine.
She will replace the MARTIN I SOLER.
The remotorising of the ferry has been an important piece of engineering, with a price tag of EUR 12.5 million.
On the other hand, technological innovations have been made on the ship to turn it into a ‘smart ship’. Among the main novelties are, the digitalisation of all the signage, as well as the access to the staterooms by means of a QR code that customers receive on their mobile phone (and which prevents them from having to go through reception), and digital entertainment on demand.
