A joint venture between French CFT and Belgian Victrol has been selected by Shell to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering barge. 

Shell informed earlier this month it has signed a long-term agreement with the JV to charter an LNG bunker barge with a capacity to carry 3,000 cubic meters of LNG fuel.

The CFT-Victrol joint venture will build and operate the 110-meter unit which will be fitted with four type C tanks under a closed deck.

The LNG barge will start bunkering operations in the port of Rotterdam in the course of 2019, CFT said.

Shell noted earlier the LNG bunker barge will provide bunkering services to vessels operating on Europe’s inland waterways.
