The 135 meter vessel will set new standards in environmentally and economically sustainable operations on inland waterways in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and France. It is being built for Combi International, a Dutch ship development, design and construction company located in Raamsdonksveer. The order has been placed by Koedood Diesel Service BV.
“The Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines have proven their reliability throughout five million running hours. Wärtsilä’s dual-fuel engine technology, which is well established in ocean going applications, can now be applied to small scale LNG-fueled vessel applications,” says Bram Kruyt, Director, Inland Water Ways, Wärtsilä Services at Wärtsilä Netherlands B.V.
