Becker barge to serve Hamburg LNG market
Becker Marine Systems’ hybrid-power LNG barge ‘Hummel’ is to serve Hamburg’s cruise ship market after completing technical trials successfully.
The barge was launched in Komárno, Slovakia at the beginning of September 2014 and was christened following successful passage to Hamburg. It will begin supplying cruise ships next month.
“The overall LNG hybrid barge system with gas motors is an impressive technical achievement. The trials were also a milestone for classification,“ said Hans Gätjens, vice president marine at Bureau Veritas, responsible for the Central Europe region.
