Chart Ferox, the Czech cryogenic equipment specialist, has established a significant presence in the developing sector for LNG as marine fuel. The company has secured orders to provide the fuelling systems for three distinctively different LNG-powered vessel projects.
The contracts build on the success achieved by Chart in delivering more than 60 satellite LNG plants over the past decade. Chart Ferox made its debut in the LNG-fuelled vessel sector in 2006 when it delivered the first in a series of 125m3 LNG fuel-tank-plus-cold-box arrangements for double-ended ferries under construction for Fjord1 at the Aker Brattvaag yard in Norway.
Bergensfjord was the first of three similar ferries constructed for service on the Halhjem-Sandvikvåg cross-fjord link, part of the busy E13 route on Norway’s west coast. Chart Ferox supplied each of the three ships with two 125m3, vacuum-insulated LNG tanks.
