Swedish bunker supplier Gasum on Tuesday (25 August) said it bunkered United European Car Carriers’ vessel M/V Auto Energy with liquefied natural gas (LNG) at the Malmö Port in Sweden via a ship-to-ship operation from Coralius to Auto Energy.
The car carrier Auto Energy mainly operates between Zeebrugge and the St. Petersburg area and won the Greenports Awards 2019 for the most eco-friendly vessel, it said.
This is the first time Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) has hosted ship-to-ship LNG bunkering in Malmö and Gasum said the port has joined the Gasum network of European ports qualified for LNG deliveries, either ship-to-ship or by trucks.
“We are happy to support both UECC and Copenhagen Malmö Port in this operation,” said Jacob Granqvist, Sales Director, Gasum.
“The addition of more ports to our LNG network is our response to customer demands and underlines the fact that LNG bunkering is closing in on conventional bunkering.”
