Gibdock converts ferry to run on LNG fuel

Gibraltar’s Gibdock shipyard has completed a major conversion project so that the Baleària ferry NAPOLES can operate using LNG as fuel.

 

The three-month project - possibly the most complex and demanding ever undertaken by the yard - consolidates Gibdock’s position as one of the leading refit facilities for environmentally-driven work in the Mediterranean.

 

The 186m long ro-pax NAPOLES, which has capacity for 1,600 passengers and 1,430 lane metres of cargo, is the first of five ships that Baleària plans to convert to dual fuel operations to comply with IMO 2020. Gibdock has already secured a contract to convert a second vessel, SICILIA, which is due to arrive at the yard later this year.

 

Richard Beards, Managing Director, Gibdock, says: ”Baleària is a longstanding client for scheduled repair and maintenance work, so it made perfect sense to carry out the conversion at Gibdock. We are delighted to have been entrusted with this landmark project, which was a first for us and for Baleària; the experience will ensure that the SICILIA conversion goes even more smoothly.”
