SEA\LNG, a multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, has welcomed Skangas as its latest member.
Skangas is a provider of LNG in Northern Europe and operates the LNG bunker and feeder vessel Coralius, which conducts ship-to-ship operations primarily in the North and Baltic Seas.
The Coralius is one of six LNGBVs currently in operation – three of which have been commissioned by SEALNG members – while another 13 are in development.
“When the Coralius began operating last fall, it marked a major turning point for the market,” commented Kimmo Rahkamo, CEO of Skangas.
“Ship-to-ship bunkering is central to supporting the maritime industry’s interest in using LNG as a marine fuel; the flexibility of the operations allows vessels to access LNG at higher transfer rates in a vastly expanded geographic area.
“In joining SEALNG, we hope to connect with like-minded industry leaders to optimise the LNG value chain across the shipping industry.”
Peter Keller, SEALNG chairman and executive vice president, TOTE Inc., commented: “Skangas will be a valued addition to our growing coalition. We’re proud that our members have individually operated at the forefront of the industry, creating landmark developments in the supply and operation of LNG bunkers.”
“Together, the coalition cooperates to inspire change and create a driving force behind the uptake of LNG as an environmentally and commercially important fuel. Collaboration, demonstration, and communication on key areas such as safety, regulation, emissions, and the economic case are essential to providing the confidence and demand required for an effective and efficient global LNG value chain.”
