EPC provider Gloryholder has been awarded the contract to design and supply the LNG cargo handling and fuel gas supply system for the new 6000-cbm LNG bunkering vessel being built by Damen Shipyard for Eesti Gaas.

The LGC 6000 LNG vessel is scheduled for August 2020, Gloryholder said in its statement.

The bunker vessel, which will operate in the Baltic Sea, will be an important contribution to the development of the LNG bunkering infrastructure in the region and significantly increase the availability of LNG for the increasing fleet of LNG fuelled vessels operating in the area.

This is the second contract for design and supply of complete cargo handling systems for LNG bunker vessels awarded to Gloryholder LGM within a short time frame.

In 2018 Gloryholder was also selected as a system provider for a 7500-cbm LNG bunker vessel which will operate in Singapore area when delivered in 2020.

The 100-meter bunkering vessel will be built at Damen Yichang Shipyard in China and will carry 6,000 cubic meters of LNG divided in two 3000-cbm type-C tanks.

The LGC 6000 LNG is also designed to meet the requirements of ICE class 1A certification and to achieve green ship notation. A dual fuel propulsion system will be used for the management of the boil-off gas (BOG) in combination with a gas burner, and the interior of the vessel will feature high-quality accommodation for her crew.
