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.
