GE to Jointly Develop COGES LPG-Fueled Ferry Design

Wednesday / November 16, 2016


GE Aviation’s marine gas turbine business announced that it has signed a multilateral memorandum of understanding (MOU) to cooperate in the joint development of LPG-fueled ferry design. The ferry will feature GE’s compact and lightweight Combined Gas Turbine, Electric and Steam (COGES) system for all ship power, including propulsion.

As this is the world’s first LPG-fueled COGES ship, the LPG industry is actively taking part in this project. For instance, FESDEC is handling the ferry design, and Cryos brings extensive experience in designing and manufacturing LPG fuel tanks.

The new GE LPG-fueled COGES ferry design is expected to improve safety and efficiency while reducing nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide emissions, meeting regulatory standards of the International Maritime Organization. The ferry’s operational expenses also will decrease by 35%. Therefore, the newly developed ferry is expected to deliver economic value and eco-friendliness that global markets require today.
