Spanish shipping and ferry company Baleària in late July received delivery of the Marie Curie, the fourth smart ferry that operates on liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The newbuilding, built in the Italian shipyard Cantiere Navale Visentini, is a sistership of the Hypatia de Alejandria.
The new Baleària smart ship, which can reach 25 knots of speed, is 186.5 meters in length and has a capacity for 880 people, 2,194 linear meters of cargo and 166 vehicles.
Baleària has invested EUR 200 million (USD 223 million) in the construction of Marie Curie and the Hypatia de Alejandria.
The company currently has four ferries with dual engines that can be powered by LNG, two of them newly built (the Hypatia de Alejandria and the Marie Curie) and two other remotorized (Naples and Abel Matutes).
Remotorizations of a further four other ferries to consume LNG as a marine fuel are planned until 2021.
It is scheduled to operate the Eleanor Roosevelt, a fast catamaran powered by LNG engines, in 2020.
