First LNG Bunkering of General Chernyakhovsky Ferry

  • The first bunkering operation to supply LNG to the dual fuel “General Chernyakhovsky” rail and truck ferry was held in the port of Ust-Luga, Russia’s federal port agency Rosmorport has reported.

    After the bunkering operation was completed, the vessel left for Kaliningrad with a cargo of ro-ro units on board.

    The “General Chernyakhovsky” ferry is equipped with a dual fuel engine using LNG or low-sulphur diesel oil. Using LNG as fuel will allow of cutting CO2 emission by 20-30%, NOx emission by more than 90%, and SOx and soot particles by 100% compared to conventional ships using heavy fuel oil.

    The “General Chernyakhovsky” ferry is deployed between Ust-Luga and Kaliningrad since October 6, 2022. Earlier, her sistership “Marshal Rokossovsky” entered the service in March this year.

    The innovative dual fuel vessels were built by Nevsky Shipbuilding and Shiprepair Yard, part of United Shipbuilding Corporation, in cooperation with Turkey’s Kuzey Star Shipyard.

    They have an ice class notation of Arc4 allowing them of operating unassisted in the ice up to 60 cm thick. The vessels comply with all the current environmental requirements.
