China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) on Monday (13 September) said its subsidiary Sinopec Fuel Oil Sales Co., Ltd. has recently conducted its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker delivery to a large vessel.
More than 250 metric tonnes (mt) of LNG bunker fuel was delivered to the newbuilding “W0269” named Salamanca at a port located in Shandong province.
“This is the first time for Sinopec to fuel a large LNG-powered vessel, contributing to emission reduction from ships and the energy transition of the shipping industry,” it stated in a social media post.
Setting sail in spring 2022, Salamanca is the second of Brittany Ferries’ new ships designed especially for its Portsmouth to Spain routes.
