Spanish ferry operator Baleària has signed the first permanent LNG bunkering contract for ship propulsion in Spain with compatriot energy company Gas Natural Fenosa.

The parties said that the supply deal, signed on January 18, will be exclusive for 10 years and will initially apply to the ports of Barcelona, Valencia and Algeciras. It would then extended to all the peninsular ports operated by the shipping company together with the entire new fleet powered by this fuel committed to using LNG as an ecological fuel.

For LNG bunkering services in Barcelona, the company will have a ship assigned to the operations at the port. In the case of Valencia and Algeciras, both companies are already developing a land-based solution.

The contract between the energy company and Baleària is the first permanent, multi-system bunkering contract for LNG ship propulsion signed in the Iberian Peninsula.

“We are currently building the first two ships powered by this clean energy to operate in the Mediterranean. The first is scheduled to come into operation at the beginning of this year, which makes us pioneers in the use of LNG,” Adolfo Utor, the president of Baleària, said.
