Gasnor signs five-year LNG bunkering agreement with Ulvan Rederi

06 Apr 2021

Norwegian natural gas supplier and Shell subsidiary Gasnor on Wednesday (31 March) signed a five-year liquified natural gas (LNG) bunker supply agreement for Ulvan Rederi’s new hybrid vessel.

Oddrun With is a newbuilding built for Ulvan Rederi is a multi-purpose cargo vessel with a hybrid propulsion system that includes both LNG and battery power.

The vessel will carry out operations for the aquaculture industry and general freight in Norway, from Tromsø to Moss.

Oddrun With is being constructed at the Tersan shipyard in Turkey, and is scheduled to be delivered in May 2021.

It is equipped with a 350 cbm LNG tan and will primarily be bunkered on Møhlenpriskaien every 14 days by Gasnor’s LNG bunkering vessels.

This is Ulvan Rederi’s largest single investment and is part of its green shipping program.

The development was to design a propulsion system with the lowest possible emissions while optimising energy consumption through cooling systems and cold ironing from shore.

The battery pack has sufficient capacity to operate the vessel and will also utilise the low temperature of LNG to cool the freezer compartments where frozen fish will be transported from north to south.
