Swedish bunker supplier Gasum on Monday (14 December) said its liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel Coralius delivered liquefied natural gas (LNG) to four vessels within twelve hours at Gothenburg, Sweden, setting a new record for the vessel.
Coralius supplied four tankers: Ramelia and Thun Venern operated by Furetank and Tern Ocean and Thun Evolve operated by Preem within 12 hours enabling them to continue their operations and voyages in the Baltic area.
“So far Coralius has performed several hundred ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations. She has a very experienced crew and this day in Gothenburg has really proven her capability”, said Jacob Granqvist, Sales Director Maritime in Gasum.
“The availability of LNG is not even a question when we see this kind of efficiency and achievement”.
Gasum said the use of LNG contributes significantly to the decarbonization of the shipping industry as it reduces greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20% as well as improves local air quality.
