04 Jan 2022

France’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel Gas Vitality on 30 December completed its first LNG loading operation at the Fos Cavaou LNG Terminal operated by Elengy – ENGIE GROUP at Port de Marseille Fos.

The vessel is expected to undergo its inaugural bunkering operation in due course, informs TotalEnergies in a social media update on Monday (3 January).

Gas Vitality underwent a naming ceremony at the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding in China during late October.

The 18,600-m³ newbuild bunker vessel is TotalEnergies Marine Fuels’ second collaboration with shipowner Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd (MOL) and shipbuilder, Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding following the signing of a long-term charter contract in November 2019.

Classed by Bureau Veritas and operated by V.Ships France under the French flag, the Gas Vitality will be based in the Port of Marseille-Fos, Southern France, to serve the Mediterranean region.

She will notably perform LNG bunkering services to CMA CGM’s LNG-fuelled containerships and MSC Cruises’ upcoming LNG-powered cruise ships calling at the Port of Marseille-Fos.
