Denmark soon to get its first LNG-fuelled domestic ferry
Contracts for building the first LNG-fuelled ferry for domestic Danish trade have now been signed. This represents a major milestone as the ship will be the first LNG-fuelled ferry designed for domestic trade in the EU, said in the DNV's press release. 1 October 2014 is the date set for the ferry’s first journey between the island of Samsø and Jutland on the Danish mainland. The new ferry can carry a maximum of 600 passengers and 160 cars. Danish OSK-ShipTech A/S designed the new ferry and has also conducted the EU tender process on behalf of Samsø Municipality. Remontowa Yard in Gdansk, Poland has been chosen to build the vessel, which will be classed by DNV. The owner of the new ferry will be Samsø Municipality, which is responsible for the route crossing the Kattegat. In 1997, Samsø was selected to become Denmark’s first renewable energy island. Focusing on renewable energy and environmentally friendly solutions, Samsø achieved that goal in 2003 and is today a net exporter of green power.
Captain acquitted after "Kanhave"-grounding
The Vestre Landsret judge has decided that the captain of the "Kanhave" does not have to pay a fine of 10,000 Danish crowns after the grounding of the ferry in September 2009. The "Kanhave" had got stuck in dense fog on its way into the port of Hou. The captain chose to wait to inform the SOK until the ship had refloated with own power. The district court had decided that such an incident has to be reported immediately and therefore had sentenced the captain to pay a fine of 10,000 crowns. The High Court, however, emphasized that there had been no danger to the environment or the safety of the ship in the grounding, which lasted around five minutes. The captain was acquitted.News schreiben
