The new vessel, planned for deployment in London with the name Svitzer Meridian, has a full FiFi 1 notation powered by a dedicated Cat C32 diesel engine and has been built to meet Svitzer’s so-called ‘LNG Philosophy’ which involves extra crew protection measures in the event of the presence of LNG originating from an LNG tanker or terminal. This second sister vessel of the series, Svitzer Vale was also delivered to Svitzer. The first boat of this class went directly to New Zealand.
