Nordic small scale LNG supplier Gasum on Thursday (28 November) said it has conducted its first ship-to-ship liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation of a cruise ship.
The operation took place at the Meyer Turku shipyard during November when the LNG bunker vessel Coralius provided fuel to Carnival Corporation’s cruise ship Costa Smeralda.
Costa Smeralda is the first cruise ship in a series of newbuilds at Meyer Turku that will be fitted with LNG propulsion.
“Coralius allows us to perform ship-to-ship bunkering to different types of vessels,” said Jacob Granqvist, Sales Director, LNG Marine, Gasum.
“We are happy that this now includes a cruise ship. It is always a proud moment when we can deliver our product and make maritime transportation cleaner.”
