Skangas Books New LNG Bunker Vessel

Skangass Books New Bunker Vessel

Sweden’s liquefied natural gas provider Skangas has commissioned a specialised bunker vessel which will provide ship-to-ship bunkering and freighter services in the area of Skagerrak, Kattegat and the Baltic Sea.

The new 5,800 cbm bunker vessel named Coralius is scheduled to start operations by early 2017.

”Recently, we entered into our first ship-to-ship bunker contract with NEOT in Finland. Building the new vessel Coralius is the natural step for meeting this demand, and further developing our marine LNG supply chain. Although we already satisfy our marine clients’ needs by truck-to-ship and terminals-to-ship bunkering, we need to further develop the infrastructure. By doing so, we will also be in a much stronger position to meet steadily rising demand for LNG,” said Tor Morten Osmundsen, CEO of Skangas.

The building of Coralius is part of the Joint Industry Project FLEXI, which is one of the pilot projects included in Pilot LNG. The project is part of the collaboration platform Zero Vision Tool and it is co-funded by the EU. The aim of the project is to establish an LNG bunkering infrastructure.

Skangas developed the project in cooperation with Anthony Veder and Sirius. Coralius will be built by the shipyard Royal Bodewes in the Netherlands. The vessel will be owned by the Swedish/Dutch joint venture Sirius Veder Gas AB and operated by Sirius Rederi AB of Sweden.
