Ferry damaged in allision

Fri Feb 01 12:02:15 CET 2019 Timsen

On Feb 1, 2019, at 5.45 a.m. the "Abel Matutes" upon its arrival from Valencia allided with the commercial dock of the port of Ibiza during the docking maneuver. The ferry suffered damage to its stern which suffered a breach at the ramp above the water line. The ship which serves the Valencia-Palma-Ibiza route had arrived late due to a storm in the region and had attempted to dock twice without success. During the third attempt it struck the pier. Company technicians evaluated the damages. The stevedores of the port of Ibiza have moved the cargo onto the ferry "Sicilia" which was initially bound for Barcelona but has modified its route and headed to the port of Palma, thus covering the route of the "Abel Matutes". Repairs started at Valencia the same day at 9.30 p.m. and sailed again on Feb 4 at 10.10 p.m. The first departure from Ibiza was on Feb 5 at 4 a.m. to Palma, Spanish reports with photos: https://cadenaser.com/emisora/2019/02/01/radio_ibiza/1549010349_953754.html https://www.diariodeibiza.es/pitiuses-balears/2019/02/04/abel-matutes-dique-seco/1045236.html

Barcelona Marks First LNG Bunkering of Baleària Ferry

Tue Jan 31 17:08:55 CET 2017 arnekiel

Baleària Eurolínias Marítimas S.A. (Baleària) Monday announced that, along with Gas Natural SDG, S.A. (Gas Natural Fenosa), it has completed the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering of Baleària's ferry, Abel Matutes, at the Port of Barcelona. The ferry is noted to have been recently retrofitted with a LNG storage tank and an auxiliary LNG-powered Rolls-Royce engine - an initiative Baleària says will result in an estimated annual reduction of about 4,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, more than 60 tonnes of nitrogen oxide (NOx), and 6 tonnes of sulfur oxide (SOx). http://shipandbunker.com/news/emea/330208-barcelona-marks-first-lng-bunkering-of-balearia-ferry

Pure gas engine to be installed aboard the Baleària-operated ferry Abel Matutes

Tue Apr 14 11:00:14 CEST 2015 arnekiel

Ever more vessel types are adopting LNG as a fuel for main or auxiliary machinery. Rolls-Royce recently signed a collaboration agreement with Spanish energy company Gas Natural Fenosa to develop and install a pure gas engine aboard the Baleària-operated ferry Abel Matutes. This will be Rolls-Royce’s first reference for a pure gas engine installation on a European-flagged ferry operating outside of Norwegian waters. The 29,670tonne ro-pax ferry, built in 2010 by Hijos de J Barreras in Vigo, Spain, will use the LNG-fuelled Bergen C26:33 L6 AG auxiliary engine to generate 1,560kW of clean power, dramatically reducing emissions during port stays in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca. When Abel Matutes is in port, the gas engine will be connected to the distribution infrastructure ashore or the onboard LNG tank. The ferry will also consume natural gas during approach and departure manoeuvers to generate electricity, replacing the heavy fuel oil previously used for this purpose. Use of the Bergen gas engine will, it is claimed, lead to an annual saving of almost 4,000 tonnes of CO2, over 60 tonnes of NOx and six tonnes of SOx. Baleària is Spain’s leading shipping company with a fleet of 20 vessels operating between the Iberian peninsula, the Balearic Islands, the Strait of Gibraltar and the Bahamas, and is committed to developing LNG as a marine fuel. http://www.motorship.com/news101/fuels-and-oils/lng-projects-gain-momentum2
