German ferry operator TT-Line (TT-Line) and small-scale LNG provider Avenir LNG Limited (Avenir) have completed the first LNG ship-to-ship bunkering operation for the newbuild RoPax ferry Peter Pan in Malaysia, according to Avenir on Tuesday (3 January).
On 19 December 2022, the vessel received LNG from Avenir’s small-scale bunker vessel “Avenir Advantage” at the Pengerang Anchorage, Malaysia.
The bunker vessel is owned by Avenir and provides LNG bunker services for a range of customers through its charter and partnership with Petronas.
“Peter Pan is already the second vessel of TT-Line’s fleet that receives an LNG delivery from Avenir. A first LNG & bio-LNG delivery has been performed for TT- Line’s other LNG-fuelled RoPax ferry Nils Holgersson, in June 2022, in the Port of Lübeck using trucks,” Avenir said in a social media post.
Peter Mackey, CEO of Avenir LNG, said “We are pleased to continue to support TT-Line with their LNG and bio-LNG requirements and broaden our relationship outside of Europe. Our fleet of LNG bunker vessels and global network allows us to support customers at various bunker hubs around the world. We are looking forward to continuing to support TT-Line once the vessel has arrived in its trading area, the Baltic Sea.”
Torben Nikolay, CFO of TT-Line, said: “We are happy to have a strong and professional partner for LNG bunkering with Avenir.”
