Athens-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) marine infrastructure firm probunkers has announced a multimillion dollar global-scale project at Posidonia 2018.
The project involves probunkers designing, building and operating a fleet of modern, eco-friendly LNG bunkering vessels, it says.
probunkers will have a three-tier role, as Physical supplier, LNG Trader/Seller and Barge owner and operator.
The three-fold business model includes investment, trading and finance elements. The multi-layer model involves operations, LNG buying and selling, logistics and marketing.
“I anticipate 2018 to be a landmark year for the expansion of LNG as a marine fuel into shipping,” said probunkers CEO, Alexander Prokopakis.
“We are determined to turn probunkers into a world-class investment opportunity and fulfill our vision to build a reliable global-scale LNG bunkering network.”
