Titan LNG and Brittany Ferries have signed a long-term agreement for the supply of LNG and Liquified Bio Methane (LBM) to two new LNG-fuelled hybrid RoPax vessels that Brittany Ferries will operate between England and France from 2025.
The ferries will serve established routes connecting Portsmouth with St Malo, and Portsmouth with Ouistreham. Titan aims to supply fuel to both vessels during usual cargo operations alongside (SIMOPS) to avoid delays to sailing schedules.
The two LNG-hybrid ships will join the fleet in 2024 and 2025 replacing two of the longest-serving vessels, Bretagne (1989) and Normandie (1992).
The hybrid vessels will have a large battery hybrid power system of 10 MWh for propulsion and manoeuvring in port and an 8 MW electric shore connection that will allow charging in port, when infrastructure allows.
