Gasum’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker vessel, Coralius, conducted its first bunkering in the port of Rotterdam.

During the ship-to-ship operation LNG was supplied to the chemical tanker Bit Viking. The event represented a milestone for Coralius when proving its availability in the ARA (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp area).

“Finally, being able to bunker our clients in the ARA area increases LNG availability and security for the LNG fueled fleet. The amount of LNG driven vessels is growing rapidly globally, and we will definitely be part of the growth in being present where LNG is needed,” Kimmo Rahkamo, Vice President, natural gas and LNG, Gasum, said.

Coralius mainly operates in the North Sea and the Skagerrak area, where it celebrated its 100th bunkering operation in late Fabruary.

Gasum said it expects an increase in the average amount of delivered stem, as it will perform bunkerings on shuttle tankers and other bigger vessels.
