Wessels Reederei to Convert Three More Ships to LNG Operation

World Maritime reports

German shipping company Wessels Reederei has signed a letter of intent with compatriot engine manufacturer MAN Diesel & Turbo to convert three of its ships to dual-fuel gas operation.

The document was inked at the Europort 2017 exhibition of maritime technology in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The three ships are sisters to the Wes Amelie, a 1,036 TEU feeder containership with a MAN 8L48/60B main engine that was retrofitted to a multi-fuel, four-stroke MAN 51/60DF unit earlier in 2017.
