Qatar based Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine Shipyard (N-KOM) has signed an agreement with HeLenGi Engineering for the retrofit of Greek ferries as part of the Poseidon-Med project.
Poseidon-Med is the first LNG bunkering project in the Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea led and coordinated by QENERGY Europe.
It is the first Cross European Border project which aims to introduce LNG as the main fuel for the world shipping industry and develop a sufficient infrastructure network of bunkering value chain.
The POSEIDON-MED Project aims to design a comprehensive value chain for the use of LNG as marine fuel in East Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea, including the development of an LNG transportation, distribution, and supply network, as well as, the establishment of a well-functioning and sustainable relative market for its demand.
HeLeNGi Engineering provides expertise, technology and production techniques to satisfy a diverse range of applications for the use of liquefied gas.
The signing ceremony was held at this year’s Posidonia exhibition.
