NSK - 3433 FISH PELLETS CARRIER, LNG FUELLED
NSK Ship Design solidifies its position in aquaculture and LNG vessels with yet another prestige project.
The design firm has already been working for Nordlaks on the Havfarm project, which was noted as an important step in the development of Norwegian aquaculture technology by former Minister of Fisheries Aspaker.
Now the same company is again at the forefront with a major project for the shipping company Nordnorsk Shipping.
NSK Ship Design was contacted by Nordnorsk Shipping in January 2015, when the company wished to develop a new ship design based on their experiences with the world’s first gas-fuelled cargo ship, the MS Høydal. The MS Høydal is used in aquaculture to transport salmon feed, and was also designed by NSK Ship Design.
The new design reduces NOx emissions by over 90% and CO2 emissions by approximately 25% compared to traditional diesel engines. Transport is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emission, making it an important segment to deal with. The ship is 81.50 metres long and 16 metres wide. It has a cargo capacity for 2700 tons of feed and is equipped with a 50-ton crane. The vessel is also equipped with a dynamic positioning system provided by Rolls Royce, allowing the vessel to unload without mooring.
– We’ve got a lot of experience and expertise in the field of LNG propulsion, and projects like this let us show that solutions are out there. The use of gas-fuelled cargo ships is an important step in bringing down greenhouse gas emissions, leading the way for the transport and aquaculture industries. We’re proud of the job we’re doing for the future of the maritime industries, says sales manager Thomas Myhre at NSK Ship Design.
