Cepsa of Spain on Friday said it will be supplying LNG to ships through what it claims to be the first multi-product barge in Europe. 

According to the company’s statement, the vessel will be able to provide all types of marine fuels, from traditional fuels such a heating oils and diesel, to liquefied natural gas.

Cepsa, together with its partner, Flota Suardíaz, will participate in the design and construction of the ship, which is a part of the ‘Core LNGas Hive’ initiative supported by the European Commission, aiming to develop an LNG logistics network to promote the use of gas for transport.

The first barge will start operations in 2018 from the port of Barcelona, making it the first port in southern Europe, and making Cepsa the first company in southern Europe to offer ship-to-ship bunkering, the company claims.
