World’s largest LNG bunkering carried out on “Sleipnir” crane ship
The world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation has recently been carried out in South East Asia, says Titan LNG on Wednesday (10 July).
It supplied over 3,000 metric tonnes (mt) of the chilled fuel to HEEREMA’s new LNG fuelled crane ship Sleipnir that was just completed in Singapore.
“I’m extremely proud of the Titan team that has successfully completed the largest LNG bunkering in the world”, said Niels den Nijs, CEO Titan LNG.
“It was a complex project to supply this eight-legged innovative crane vessel, the Sleipnir.
“I’d like to thank Pavilion Gas and SLNG for the support in Singapore and Anthony Veder and Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, our shipping partners, that completed this Dutch-Singaporean project.”
Titan LNG chartered the Coral Fraseri, the newest addition of the Anthony Veder small scale LNG pool of vessels, for this delivery.
The ship loaded in Singapore at the SLNG terminal where Titan LNG sourced the fuel from Pavilion Gas, the Singaporean gas and LNG supplier.
The Coral Fraseri followed the Sleipnir offshore and performed a ship-to-ship operation to cool down and fill the tanks.
“Not only is the Sleipnir the world’s largest and strongest vessel, it is also first of its kind as far as sustainability goes. Sustainability is an integral part of HMC’s identity, embedded in our daily work practices. But we intend to do far more than that,” said Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO HEEREMA.
“It shows that we act sustainable because we want to. Not because we have to. This specific project of bunkering LNG is proof of this ambition.
“We are very pleased to work together with Dutch Company Titan LNG, since it provided us with good solutions for bunkering, in Singapore as well as in Spain.”
