The 3,500 dwt multipurpose gas-run freighter, due for delivery from the Turkish Tersan Shipyard in late 2020, will feature a number of technologies to be provided by Kongsberg Maritime.
The propulsion system will comprise a Bergen B36:45L6PG gas engine and a liquefied natural gas control and safety system, a Promas controllable pitch propeller and rudder system, together with a battery pack to enable periods of emission-free operation in ports and environmentally sensitive areas.
The scope of supply will also include twin tunnel thrusters, steering gear, and deck machinery.
The electrical system will consist of a hybrid shaft generator, SAVe Cube DC switchboard and the SAVe Energy system for energy storage (designed to regenerate energy during crane operations).
Once put in place, Oddrun With will ply between Østfold and Tromsø. Apart from standard cargo operations, the ship will be able to carry reefers as well as discharge feed to fish farms.
The vessel has been designed by the Førde-based Multi Maritime (the MM85CC LNG concept)."We have chosen Kongsberg Maritime to supply the power and propulsion system including battery systems and automation as well as deck equipment. This is to ensure integration and 100% utilization of all systems, on what will be the future general cargo/reefer vessel, with focus on environmental performance. We have great confidence in Kongsberg Maritime to support the company's goal of being the leading supplier in the maritime transport along the Norwegian coast," Arild Hoff, CEO, Egil Ulvan Rederi.
