Spanish ferry operator Baleària has started LNG propulsion conversion of the Hedy Lamarr ferry at the West Sea shipyard in Portugal, the last of the six retrofit operations.

With this, Baleària will have completed its fleet plan of nine vessels that can navigate on LNG. Of these, the six are retrofits and another three are newbuilds. 

The conversion of the Hedy Lamarr’s engines will last five months. The current engines will be replaced with MAN’s dual engines, with the capacity to run on LNG and diesel. 

In addition, the ship will feature two LNG storage tanks with a total capacity of 565 cubic metres.

Baleària will also install its smart ship project systems on the ferry. Thus, the ship will have technological improvements. 

On the other hand, the ferry will have sensors to monitor fuel consumption and emissions in real-time.
