|Spirit of British Columbia converted to LNG
Remontowa SA has converted the propulsion system of the Spirit of British Columbia ferry, one of the two largest ships of BC Ferries, from traditional to environmentally friendly one, fed by natural gas, stored as LNG.
Finnlines has entrusted Remontowa Shiprepair Yard SA in Gdansk, with the task of lengthening its two ro-ro vessels Finnbreeze and Finnsea, as a continuation of the lengthening programme executed at the yard.
Lengthening of Finnlines’ Ro-Ro vessels: Since the second half of 2017, the lengthening of Ro-Ro vessels operated by Finnlines at Remontowa SA, has been in progress. The first stage of this challenge – the lengthening of the first two vessels has already been successfully completed.
Finnlines has entrusted Remontowa Shiprepair Yard SA to lengthen four of its “Breeze series” vessels, with an option of two additional ones. Thanks to the lengthening that will increase capacity of each by around 1000 lane metres, the vessels will become more energy efficient and more environmentally friendly by cutting emissions.
Remontowa SA completed works on the former drilling jack-up platform Petrobaltic, commissioned by Lotos Petrobaltic SA. On the platform, docked onboard the yard’s own semi-submersible unit Rem Lift 25000, disassembly of scaffolding has recently been carried out.
