Wärtsilä has been chosen to supply an integrated hybrid propulsion system for two new hybrid RoRo vessels, including the engines, a methanol fuel supply system, a hybrid electric system, as well as bow thrusters and an onshore power system for two new methanol-fuelled hybrid RoRo vessels.
The ships are being built at the China Merchants Jinling shipyard (Weihai) Co., Ltd for Stena RoRo. The ships will be the world’s first methanol fuelled hybrid RoRo vessels and will operate in the Stena Line Irish Sea system. Part of the order was booked by Wärtsilä in Q2 2023, while the remaining order was booked in Q3 2023.
