Nordic energy company Gasum Ltd on Friday (17 June) said it has carried out its first liquefied natural gas/liquefied biogas (LNG/LBG) bunkering of Donsötank’s Prospero.
The bunkering operation took place on Thursday (16 June) off Gothenburg with Gasum’s LNG bunker and feeder vessel Coralius delivering fuel to the vessel.
“The renewable and ISCC certified part was about 25% of the total volume. The smooth and safe bunker operation took place in fantastic weather conditions,” it said in a social media post.
Donsötank took delivery of plug-in hybrid electric tanker Prospero in December 2021, the first of two hybrid electric vessels by the company, it said.
