Crowley in MAN-powered ConRo deal

Florida-based Container-RoRo operator Crowley Maritime Corporation has placed an order for several MAN B&W dual-fuel engines, to be installed in two new ConRo vessels.

Each new vessel will be powered by one MAN B&W 8S70ME-GI8.2 main engine and 3 MAN 9L28/32DF auxiliary engines, and will operate between ports in the United States and Puerto Rico. The vessels will be two of the first LNG-powered ConRo ships in the world, operating at speeds of up to 22 knots.

According to Crowley’s projections, the new vessels will reduce the per-container CO2 output by 38%, and will exceed all regulatory requirements.

“Our investment in these new ships – the first of their kind in the world – is significant”, said chairman and ceo Tom Crowley. “We are developing and using best-available technology that allows for improved emissions and alternative fuel selection”.
