Efficient liquefied gas deliveries and bunkering with our vessels

Today, nearly 600 vessels use LNG as their primary source of fuel and there are about 400 LNG vessels on order. This number is expected to rise significantly, as LNG is recognized by the shipping industry as the most viable alternative fuel to reduce emissions.

Our maritime customers can be effectively provided by ship-to-ship bunkerings from our vessels Coralius and Kairos. The solution lies in flexible, efficient and safe ship-to-ship (STS) bunkering of large volumes. STS bunkering is very flexible in terms of location, whether in port or at sea.

With our vessels we are also able to transport LNG directly to our industry customers throughout the Nordics and we support our local terminals for LNG storing before further land transportation by trucks or as natural gas by local pipe grids. The vessels Coral Energy and Coral EnergICE mainly focus on tranporting LNG to Gasums terminals.

One of the innovations applied on the vessel is the direct drive dual-fuel engine.

This unique engine means that the propulsion system is extremely efficient and, with LNG as maritime fuel, the propulsion provides an eco-friendly ship operation.

Due to her size and in-house developed innovative compatibility package, the ship is able to load LNG at large scale terminals.

Type: LNG carrier
Build: 2012
Size: 15,600 m3

Coral EnergICE – LNG carrier

Coral EnergICE is the first LNG carrier holding the Ice Class 1A Super. She is specially designed and constructed to operate in the Baltic Sea in order to bring Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to Gasum’s terminal in Pori and Manga LNG terminal in Tornio, Finland. The naming ceremony of Coral EnergICE was held in 2018 in Turku, Finland.

The vessel’s hull is reinforced to break through one-meter thick ice with the engines and generators designed to give the vessel extra power when sailing through thick ice and harsh winter conditions.

Furthermore, this state-of-the art vessel is equipped with a dual fuel engine. It uses LNG boil-off gas as a fuel for its main and auxiliary engines, making the vessel fully compliant with future emission regulations.

Principal Particulars

Type: LNG carrier
Delivery: January 2018
Size: 18,000 m3

Kairos - LNG bunker

Kairos is one of the larger dedicated LNG bunker supply vessels in the world. The 7,500 m³ vessel is equipped with a dual-fuel engine using LNG as main fuel and is equipped with a range of technical features to be able to serve a wide range of maritime customers and storage terminals.

Read more

The ship has been designed to supply LNG to various types and sizes of vessels at all possible bunkering locations in Northwest Europe, including ports and anchorage areas at the North Sea and Baltic Sea.

As a part of that set-up the vessel can supply LNG with a transfer rate from 60 m³/ hour up to 1,250 m³/ hour.

The ship’s cranes have a range of up to 30 meters, which enables the vessel to serve even the largest customers in the market. Kairos is able to operate under harsh weather conditions and at high sea, due to the vessel being DP2 certified and being build with the ice class 1A. Vapour return gas received from customers can be stored in a separate CNG tank on board.

Type: LNG bunker and feeder vessel
Delivery: October 2018
Size: 7,500 m³

Seagas - LNG bunker

Seagas was retrofitted from car ferry to LNG fuelling vessel in 2012 at Fiskerstrand verft, Norway. She was specially built for ship-to-ship refuelling. The vessel can supply LNG driven vessels with up to 160 m3 LNG in about 45 minutes.

Seagas was the first of its kind in the world and is classified according to the same regulations as for ocean-going LNG tankers.

On a daily basis Seagas delivers between 60-70 ton LNG to the Viking Line cruise ships M/S Viking Grace and M/S Viking Glory. The bunker operation takes place as the vessels are moored at Stadsgården in central Stockholm. Meanwhile passengers and goods are unloaded and loaded.

With Seagas’ safe LNG bunker solution we meet Viking Line’s needs for efficient bunkering including the highest safety standard as both are important in this context.
