A bunker tanker capable of delivering a variety of marine fuels, including liquefied natural gas (LNG), will reportedly start operations at the port of Algeciras in Spain from November 2018.
The 5,250 dwt Bunker Breeze was delivered to Suardiaz Energy Shipping (Suardiaz Group) on 25 October, 2018; it has 10 cargo tanks for heavy fuel oil and marine diesel oil and four for LNG tanks.
“From Zamakona Yards we want to thank again the president of the Suardíaz Group Juan Riva and Cepsa for the trust placed in our shipyard,” said a statement from the shipyard on the Magazine of Naval Engineering.
“We are sure that the Bunker Breeze will carry out the work entrusted to it in a very satisfactory manner. We would like to highlight the extraordinary collaboration that has existed between the charterer, the shipping company, and the shipyard during the different phases of design and construction of the ship.
“This has allowed adapting each and every one of the ship's systems to the operational needs of the ship. We want to make special mention of the effort made by the technical departments of Suardiaz and Zamakona for the integration of the different elements of the LNG system in the Bunker Breeze.”
The Sea Breeze is reportedly chartered by CEPSA; companies such as Cintranaval, Bureau Veritas, Guascor, Itxasmarine, and more are involved in its construction.
The newbuilding is Zamakona's third construction for Suardiaz Group.
