Russia will see its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel built by the end of 2019, says the vessel’s ship designer Krylov State Research Centre (KSRC) as reported by local media IAA PortNews.
The newbuilding is being built at the Onega Shipyard under a project by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and will be equipped with LNG storage tanks with capacity of 160 cubic meters each, said Anton Lutskevich.
In addition to perform LNG bunkering operations, the vessel can also function as an LNG carrier and floating power unit, he adds while giving a presentation at the 11th All-Russian Forum Current State and Prospects of the Russian Ship Bunkering Market in St. Petersburg.
