Vestas aircoil supplies coolers for fast cargo/passenger ferry

Australian shipbuilders Austal and Incat Tasmania have ordered a total of eight MAN 16V28/33D STC engines in which Vestas supply Charge air coolers for.

Austal and Incat Tasmania are building the world’s fastest, efficient, environmentally clean, high speed ships. For the new project they have purchased the engines with the hope to build one fast ferry at each shipyard in Trinidad and Tobago.

Each vessel will be powered by four MAN 16V28/33D STC units this will help to provide high-speed passenger and vehicle operations on the Seabridge between both the islands.

The Austal vessel will be 94 m long and designed to carry 926 passengers and 250 cars at high speeds. The ship will be built in Austal’s new shipyard in Vung Tau, Vietnam.

Incat’s 100-m Vessel will be a new fast cargo/passenger ferry with the ability to cater for 1000 people and will carry 239 cars or a combination of trucks and cars. Incat will build the vessel at its shipyard in Tasmania, Australia.

Aftermarket success in Japan

 

The Japanese market is traditionally hard to enter. In recent years Vestas aircoil has been successful with Japanese engine builders for “OEM”, but selling to Japanese ship owners is an altogether different matter. There are cultural and logistical issues to overcome, especially when it is our factory in China carrying out the manufacturing.

Our newly appointed distributor in Japan, Fukuno Internatioinal Ltd are at the heart of our success, and we thank them here formally.

The 20 years of trying refers to our long standing search for the right partner and the right conditions. Now we started!

New success for Vestas with Chinese owners

 

For a European origin company to be winning orders from Chinese ship management companies, right under the nose of of the local “grey market” is something we are very proud of.

Another four huge 2-stroke engine air coolers secured this week via our Shanghai distributor, Longy Thermal.

There is a market for the highest quality, even where you may assume otherwise!
