The newly built ice class vessel Coral EnergICE has started regular loading operations with the first loading at the Zeebrugge LNG Terminal.

The vessel will be making regular calls for delivering small-scale LNG to Scandinavian ports, according to Belgium-based Fluxys.

Designed to operate in the sub-zero temperatures of the Baltic Sea, Coral EnergICE has a loading capacity of 18,000 m³ and is currently assigned to make year-round small-scale LNG deliveries to northern ports in Sweden and Finland.

Today approximately 100 ships are using LNG as a fuel in Europe and their number is set to double by 2020 when more stringent sulphur emission standards come into force. The development of new infrastructure is in full swing to support this growth of the small-scale LNG market.

The Zeebrugge LNG terminal has been offering LNG trailer loading services since 2010. Small LNG vessels can load at the terminal since 2010 as well and the facility’s recently built second jetty is specially designed for loading also small LNG bunkering vessels.
