Gasum expands LNG bunkering services towards continental Europe via Emden port

01 Dec 2020

Swedish bunker supplier Gasum on Monday (30 November) said it has expanded its liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering services towards continental Europe by completing its first bunkering operation in Emden, Germany.

The bunkering was successfully performed on Sunday, 22 November to SIEM Confucius by Gasum’s LNG bunker vessel Coralius.

Gasum notes that Emden port, located in the northwest Germany, is one of the most significant car shipping ports in Europe and the latest area of expansion for Gasum’s bunkering operations.

SIEM Confucius is a trans-Atlantic, large car carrier, and her regular route includes the USA, Mexico and back to Emden port every 50 days.

“A lot of preparation went into this first LNG delivery with Gasum. As a result of this close collaboration between SIEM and Gasum the LNG delivery was accomplished very smoothly and well within the allowed time. We are delighted to have added a new supply option in Emden”, said Michael Dugdale, Head of Procurement at SIEM Group.

At the end of June this year, Coralius proved her availability in the ARA area (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp), performing her first bunkering operation at the port of Rotterdam.

Her main operating area being in Skagerrak, Coralius has lately expanded her services further west and continental Europe thus making LNG more available for companies operating also outside the Nordic and Baltic seas.

“We are very proud to serve a new shipping customer and satisfied as we were able to provide SIEM Confucius with LNG in Emden port,” said Jacob Granqvist, Sales Director for Maritime at Gasum.

“As one of the most important roll-on/roll-off ports in Europe, Emden serves as an important milestone in extending our services to maritime companies operating in the region.

“It’s evident that the more popular LNG becomes in maritime transport, we too must become even more flexible and bring our services to wherever they are needed.”
