The Coral Methane has completed retrofit upgrades at the Remontowa shipyard to modify the liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier into a LNG bunkering tanker.
“We are proud on our project team and crew who worked successfully in close cooperation with the yard on her modification,” said Anthony Veder.
Shell and Anthony Veder in November 2017 signed a contract to modify the 7,500 cbm LNG carrier Coral Methane into an LNG bunker vessel to help meet the maritime industry’s growing demand for natural gas as a bunker fuel.
The modification marks the first of its kind and will entail integration of specific LNG bunker equipment into the vessel.
“We are proud to offer Shell this pioneering solution that once again emphasizes our expertise and continuous focus on safety and innovation,” said Jan Valkier, CEO of Anthony Veder.
“Furthermore, the modification project enables us to continue to build on our strong partnership with Shell and to drive sustainable change in our industry.”
The Coral Methane will cover LNG bunkering demands across Europe, operating primarily in the southern part of the North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
