End November Gasum’s Coralius delivered liquefied natural gas (LNG) to four vessels within twelve hours. This was a new record and another milestone for the bunkering vessel. The ship-to-ship bunkering took place in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Four oil/chemical tankers needed fuel of liquefied natural gas (LNG) that last day of November. Ramelia and Thun Venern operated by Furetank and Tern Ocean and Thun Evolve operated by Preem. Gasum’s Coralius supplied the four tankers within twelve hours enabling them to continue their operation and voyages in the Baltic area.
"So far Coralius has done several hundred ship-to-ship LNG bunkerings. She has a very experienced crew and this day in Gothenburg has really proven her capability", says Jacob Granqvist, Sales Director Maritime in Gasum. "The availability of LNG is not even a question when we see this kind of efficiency and achievement".
The use of LNG contributes significantly to the decarbonization of the shipping industry. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20% as well as improves local air quality. In addition, it meets all current and forthcoming regulations set out by the International Maritime Organization and EU regulations.
