Baleària & Fred. Olsen Express have gathered around 35 representatives of travel agencies from Huelva and Seville in an event aboard the Marie Curie LNG-powered smart ship, which connects the Huelva port with the Canary Islands. The travel agents were able to visit and check first-hand all the services offered by the ferry, among which the entertainment and the wide gastronomic offer stand out, in addition to the new accommodation for pets in cabins.
Likewise, they have also been able to learn about Baleària’s commitment to the use of natural gas, a cleaner energy that reduces greenhouse emissions and improves air quality by completely eliminating emissions of sulfur and particles harmful to health. In this sense, it should be noted that this ferry is newly built and started sailing last summer.
The Marie Curie, 168 meters long, has a capacity for 880 people, 169 vehicles and more than 2,000 linear meters of cargo. It has different seating and cabin accommodations, a children’s area, a shop, a cafeteria, self-service, an à la carte restaurant and jacuzzis on the outside deck.
Due to its environmental and economic benefits, LNG has experienced great growth as a marine fuel in the Iberian Peninsula. To analyze this extremely positive scenario for natural gas both in road and maritime transport, and evaluate the latest in alternative fuel technologies and sustainable mobility, AltFuels Iberia 2020 will be held on 28-30 October at IFEMA Trade Fair Center in Madrid.
