Contract Awarded to Upgrade Stena Germanica Ship Automation Systems

stena-germanica-3-dd702f10-78a4-4c5d-8700-9db2b349a05aFinnish company Metso¬†has been awarded a contract to upgrade and expand the ship automation of M/S Stena Germanica, a RoPax vessel owned by Stena Line, one of the world’s largest ferry operators. Metso’s contractual partner is Gdansk Ship Repair Yard Remontowa S.A.
Stena Line will have the vessel’s main engines converted to run on methanol and marine gas oil as a dual-fuel concept. The project is to prove and showcase methanol as an innovative, safe and sustainable fuel for shipping, which consequently lowers the vessel’s sulfur dioxide (SOx) and particulate emissions.
Delivery will take place in the first quarter of 2015.  More information can be found here.
