Large RoPax vessels are those above 30,000 gt up to 75,000 gt and beyond. From a propulsion perspective there is little difference in the technology employed between RoRo and RoPax vessels, especially at larger sizes, but RoPax vessels have a much higher hotel demand. This difference can manifest itself in many ways and can influence energy and efficiency strategies. While large RoRo vessels are commonly equipped with 2-stroke main engines, a 4-stroke hybrid setup offers advantages in the form of added efficiencies and flexibility.
Reducing emissions and increasing operational flexibility are the main drivers behind the proposed propulsion system for larger Ropax vessels. It is based on a highly adaptable, modular propulsion concept that can be customised through a data-driven design process and offers advanced system functionalities that help you to address variable operation conditions.
