Marine solutions and system integration expert Høglund has been awarded a contract by Bergen Tankers to deliver a cargo handling system for an LNG bunker vessel.

Høglund said that the cargo handling system would be delivered to Norway’s first-ever bunkering vessel named Bergen LNG.

As part of a long-term charter with Shell Gasnor, the vessel will be retrofitted from an existing fuel oil bunkering vessel. Previously known as Oslo Tank, Bergen LNG will operate in Bergen harbor from the fourth quarter of 2020 and will serve future LNG cruise ships from Hurtigruten and Havila Coastal Route.

The company will supply both hardware and automation solutions, including an IMO Type C cargo tank, cargo pumps, bunker manifolds, custody transfer system, and a ship-to-ship transfer system. Høglund will also provide cargo control and emergency shutdown systems, and ship-to-shore/ship-to-ship link systems.

Peter Morsbach, director of projects at Høglund Gas Solutions, said: “Høglund has worked on several of the world’s current LNG bunkering vessels […]. Retrofits should be an easy way for an owner to benefit from the shift to alternative fuels, but there are complications that can stand in the way that requires more than the standard one-size-fits-all solution to overcome.

Unlike a newbuild, which belongs to the yard until delivery, a retrofitted vessel is the property of the owner throughout its refitting. As a result, we can help owners to facilitate retrofits that are both timely and engineered for long-term reliability.

Høglund also supplies fuel gas supply systems for the Hurtigruten vessels that will operate out of Bergen. The vessels will be compatible for use with sustainably sourced bio-LNG.
