Wärtsilä and CLdN cooperate in building of innovative hybrid RoRo vessels

The technology group Wärtsilä and logistics provider CLdN have jointly developed an innovative hybrid design for two new RoRo vessels.

The propulsion arrangement is such that the ships can operate as gas/diesel-mechanical vessel now, or in the future as gas/diesel-electric vessel. The vessels are being built at Hyundai Mipo Dockyards in Korea.

The Wärtsilä hybrid system includes Energy Storage Systems, two large PTO/PTI generators and electric motors, multidrive converters, and the Wärtsilä Energy Management System that controls and optimises the hybrid operations.

The solution will enable the ships’ CO2 emissions to be minimised, thereby supporting the marine sector’s decarbonisation ambitions. The order with Wärtsilä was placed in June 2022.

The two 234m long vessels will each feature 8,000 lane metres of cargo space. They are part of CLdN’s fleet renewal programme aimed at drastically reducing emissions. The ships are scheduled to be delivered in Q4 2024 and Q1 2025, and will operate on CLdN’s European network.

Wärtsilä is a market leader in hybrid solutions for shipping applications with installations onboard more than 70 vessels and in excess of 100 MWh installed battery capacity. The company has a long-standing and well-established relationship with CLdN.
