LNG is the maritime fuel of the future

LNG is the answer to the world’s ever-stricter emission legislation.

LNG not only reduces emissions – it also saves you fuel costs. Unlike diesel, the price of LNG is not linked to the oil price. Moreover, LNG combustion is cleaner, so the maintenance intervals are longer. A win-win situation: good for the environment and a lower total cost of ownership.

MAN Rollo was the first to develop a classified LNG generator set. Our generator sets are quiet, compact and sustainable and have a fast load response.

E3262 LE201

Thanks to its compactness and fast load response, the MAN V-12 lean-burn gas engine, E3262 LE201 (550 kW@1500 rpm), is ideally suited to maritime applications that use LNG. The engine also has very low fuel consumption and excellent exhaust gas emission values, which means it will easily comply with future environmental requirements for shipping. The engine can be classified under DNV-GL, BV and ABS.

Supply of LNG engines for the maritime sector

MAN Rollo delivered three generator sets to the Fassmer shipyard in Berne, Germany.

Fassmer is building the new Helgoland ferry for operator AG Ems. The Helgoland Ferry is being constructed in accordance with the environmentally-friendly “Blue Angel” standard. The ferry will use LNG as fuel, thus largely eliminating soot particles, NOx and SOx and drastically reducing CO2 emissions.
The 79-metre long Helgoland will have a capacity of 1000 passengers and a cruising speed of 20 knots. It will provide an all-year-round service between Cuxhaven and Helgoland.

MAN Rollo supplied the generator sets that serve as auxiliary generators. The sets can also be deployed as boost power for the main propulsion system. The new MAN E3262 LE202 engines are to be used for the generator sets. These 500 Kw engines have been developed on the basis of the lean-burn combustion process. The sets meet the requirements of classification society DNV-GL.
