Gasum completes LBG bunkering of Island Offshore’s “Island Contender”

19 Sep 2022

Nordic energy company Gasum on Saturday (17 September) said it has successfully carried out a liquefied biogas (LBG) bunkering of Island Offshore’s offshore vessel Island Contender on 14 September. 

The operation was performed at Ulsteinvik Yard after the vessel completed her 10-year class at the yard. 

“Gasum also delivered LBG to her sister vessel, Island Crusader when she completed her class in April earlier this year,” said the firm in a social media post. 

“Next month will mark the one-year anniversary for when Island Crusader became the first offshore vessel on the Norwegian shelf to run on biofuel,” it said. 

“Gasum and Island Offshore are both dedicated to reducing the carbon emissions in the shipping industry, one step and one cargo at a time.”
