The world’s largest LNG bunker supply vessel Kairos conducted the first supply operation for the newbuild ferry MS Visborg at the port of Visby on March 15, 2019.

The bunker operation puts into practice the contract for the supply of LNG, which was signed by LNG supplier Nauticor and owner and operator of the new ferry Destination Gotland in December 2017.

Under the deal, the ferry would run on the environmental-friendly fuel while connecting the Swedish mainland with the island of Gotland.

“The start of LNG bunkering for Destination Gotland’s new LNG fuelled ferry Visborg marks the start-up of bunker operations with our new LNG bunker supply vessel Kairos and shows that the availability of LNG as fuel for shipping on a large-scale basis is secured in Northwest Europe,” Mahinde Abeynaike, CEO of Nauticor, said.

“With shipping companies having access to a fuel that not only is financially attractive, but also environmentally sustainable, people and nature in Northwest Europe, and especially along the Swedish East coast, will benefit from a substantial reduction of emissions at sea and in port.”
