Estonia-based liquified natural gas (LNG) bunker supplier Elenger Marine on Wednesday (13 January) said it has now become a member of the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF).
“Our aim is to serve LNG customers in the Baltic Sea region, providing an environmentally friendly alternative,” said Elenger.
“We see SGMF as a valuable source for networking, sharing practice and promotion of our LNG Tanker Optimus services within the marine industry. We believe our membership will aid in expanding our reach global visibility and will allow us to be at the forefront of industry change.”
Elenger launched its LNG bunker tanker Optimus in September at Damen Shipyard where it was built.
Optimus will go into service in the eastern part of the Baltic Sea, especially the Gulf of Finland. The vessel has a high level of maneuverability which allows her to operate in various types of ports.
Optimus will be able to bunker tankers, cargo ships, service craft and passenger vessels both in offshore waters and inside port areas, and is able to transfer up to 1000 m3/h of liquefied natural gas to customers.
“After its delivery in first quarter 2021, Optimus will start supplying this LNG as bunker fuel in our home sea to a wide range of different vessels including two new generation Tallink fast ferries,” said Pasi Näkki, CEO of Elenger Marine.
Optimus was also designed to be an Ice class 1A bunkering vessel, and it will be able to render services to clients all year round in the eastern Baltic Sea.
