• NOx emissions lower than the limits established by the IMO Tier III
  • High level of acceptance and load shedding, which gives the solution great flexibility in the usual operations of the vessel

The Opportunity

Despite not being included within the areas declared ECA by the MARPOL, the Mediterranean Sea, is among the future candidates to be part of it.

All agents operating in this area are considering adopting more environmentally friendly solutions, including Balearia.

The ‘Margarita Salas’ vessel, built by Astilleros Armon in Gijón, is a 125 meters long Fast Ferry that will cover the line between Denia and Palma de Mallorca, with a capacity of 1,200 passengers and 400 vehicles.

The Solution

  • Guascor Energy has supplied, for the ”Margarita Salas”, two G-24SL gas generator sets of 430 kVA at 50Hz, for the electrical supply of all the vessel’s services, including maneuvers in port. The auxiliary gas generation system is part of an integral propulsion/generation system additionally composed of four other groups dual-fuel propellants.

    The whole system complies with the strictest safety requirements certified by Bureau Veritas while the emissions levels are below those required by IMO Tier III.
