Baleària’s new high-speed ferry will run on LNG with Wärtsilä dual fuel technology

Wärtsilä will supply dual fuel engines and high-performance axial flow waterjets for a new high-speed ro-pax ferry. The ship, the ‘Margarita Salas’, is being built at Astilleros Armon Gijon in Spain on behalf of the Spanish shipping company Baleària. LNG is currently the cleanest and most mature marine fuel available within the industry’s decarbonization focus.
