Coralius, the first European-built LNG bunker and distribution vessel, was named on Monday, May 22.

The vessel was commissioned by owners Anthony Veder and Sirius Shipping in 2015 and was built by Royal Bodewes.

This new vessel will offer LNG bunkering services for Skangas, a subsidiary of Gasum, mainly operating in the North Sea, the Skagerak area and the Baltic Sea.

“Bunkering LNG ship-to-ship increases the accessibility of this marine fuel for our customers,” said Kimmo Rahkamo, Chief Executive Officer of Skangas.

“It is a very valuable add-on to our existing bunkering methods of truck and terminals along the coast. Thanks to Coralius, from July onwards, our customers are going to experience swifter and more flexible bunkering operations than ever before.”

The Coralius is constructed according to the guidelines set by the Society for Gas and Marine Fuel (SGMF).

Jan Valkier, Chief Executive Officer of Anthony Veder, said: “We have a long track record in small to mid-size LNG shipping. Last year we conducted the first safe bunkering operation in the Gothenburg area for Skangas with Coral Energy, another of our LNG carriers. The Coralius is our first LNG bunker vessel developed in co-operation with Sirius Shipping and we are very proud to serve the market in a safe and efficient way with the delivery of this dedicated LNG bunker vessel.”
