With this, Baleària will have completed its fleet plan of nine vessels that can navigate on LNG. Of these, the six are retrofits and another three are newbuilds.

The conversion of the Hedy Lamarr’s engines will last five months. The current engines will be replaced with MAN’s dual engines, with the capacity to run on LNG and diesel.

In addition, the ship will feature two LNG storage tanks with a total capacity of 565 cubic metres.
