UECC opts for eco-friendly LNG propulsion

Norwegian company UECC (United European Car Carriers) unveiled its newly built vessel “Auto Energy” which is the world’s largest car carrier with main engine running on LNG. The 181-metre long and 30-metre wide car carrier, is a dual-fuel vessel featuring modern technologies  that ensure energy and fuel savings.

The “Auto Energy” is the world’s largest car carrier with a main engine that can run on LNG. “In LNG operation, the emission of nitrogen oxides is reduced by up to 80 per cent and there are no sulphur dioxide or particulate emissions at all,” said Jörg Schulz, Bremen’s State Councillor for Ports

According to UECC, the “Auto Energy” can carry up to 4000 cars and has a ramp capacity of up to 160 tons. The new vessel has 1A ice class certification. The “Auto Energy” can load extremely high components: her ten decks can be adjusted to a height of 5.30 metres, providing ample space for cargo on Mafi trailers and for high & heavy rolling cargo such as mobile cranes, agricultural machinery and crawler excavators. Her sister ship, the “Auto Eco”, has the same features.

UECC said both the Auto Energy and a sister ship, the Auto Eco, will operate on an intra-European route between Southampton, U.K., and the Scandinavian region.
