Gasum’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker vessel Coralius hit a milestone completing its 100th bunkering operation on February 21, 2019.

Gasum, formerly named Skangas, said on Wednesday that Coralius was mostly operating in the North Sea and the Skagerrak area. The vessel delivers LNG through ship-to-ship bunkering at sea and in port.

The company added that the LNG bunker vessel completed its 100th bunkering operation in just 18 months.

Kimmo Rahkamo, vice president of natural gas and LNG at Gasum, said, “With Coralius, we have been able to perform bunkering to different types of vessels, which is quite unique and demands us to be prepared for all types of vessels.”

According to Gasum, Coralius will perform more bunkering operations in 2019 than in 2018. The company also foresees an increase in the average amount of delivered stem, as it will perform bunkerings on shuttle tankers and other bigger vessels.

Coralius was built by the Royal Bodewes in the Netherlands and is the first European built LNG bunker and distribution vessel. It is equipped with LNG transfer equipment for bunkering and has a cargo capacity of 5,800 cubic meters.
