Nauticor’s LNG bunkering vessel starts construction

16 Mar 2018

A keel laying ceremony for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel of Hamburg-based LNG marine fuel supplier Nauticor, a subsidiary of Linde Group, took place at a South Korea shipyard on 26 February, 2018.

“The construction of the new LNG bunker supply vessel in South Korea is making visible progress,” it says.

Nauticor expects to take delivery of the vessel in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2018.

“The vessel will then be used to supply LNG to the maritime customers of Nauticor – Clean shipping powered by Linde in Northwest Europe,” it notes.

Nauticor, formerly known as Bomn Linde LNG, in February set a record for the bunkering speed of LNG at Rotterdam port.

The LNG bunker supplier carried out the largest bunkering operation involving LNG as a marine fuel at the Elbehafen harbour in Brunsbuttel, Germany in the same month.
