Baleària has ordered the world’s first LNG powered ro-pax high-speed ferry.
The fast ferry is being built at the Armon shipyard in Gijón after an Incat Crowther design.
With a length of 125m and a beam of 28m, the new catamaran will have capacity for 1,200 passengers and 500 cars (or otherwise 500 lane meters freight and 250 cars).
The vessel will be propelled by four Wärtsilä dual-fuel LNG engines delivering 8,800 kW each, allowing it to attain a service speed of 35 knots, and a top speed of over 40 knots.
Range will be 400 nautical miles.
Investment is 90 million euros.  Entry into service summer 2020.
