Spanish LNG provider Molgas Energia completed the first liquefied natural gas bunkering operation in the port of Santander. 

The company carried out the commercial, safety and technical operation, from LNG purchase, transport to supply, according to Molgas statement.

Molgas supplied two trailers, amounting to 40 tons of liquefied natural gas, via a truck-to-ship method to the 110m long LNG-fueled cement carrier, Ireland in a five-hour long operation.

The operation was coordinated with the Port Authority of Santander, Molgas said, adding that the company has already bunkered the vessel once at the port of Bilbao.

Ireland is a cement tanker built by the Dutch shipbuilder Ferus Smit for JT cement, a joint venture between Erik Thun and KG Jebsen Cement from Norway.

According to Ferus Smit, Ireland and its sister vessel Greenland are the first ever dry cargo vessels with an LNG fuelled propulsion system and LNG tanks integrated inside the hull.
