Liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplier, Nauticor, part of the Linde Group, signed a deal with Destination Gotland to supply the chilled fuel in Sweden. 

The contract allows for the provision of LNG as fuel for the ferry service connecting the Swedish mainland with the island of Gotland, Nauticor said in a statement on Monday.

Destination Gotland’s first LNG fueled RoPax ferry M/S Visborg will begin operations on that ferry link in 2018.

Speaking of the agreement, Mahinde Abeynaike, CEO of Nauticor, said that the company’s new bunker vessel will play an important role in developing a tailor-made solution for Destination Gotland.

Nauticor will cooperate with its sister company AGA that operates the Linde Group’s LNG terminal in Nynäshamn.

“This marks an important step in the development of a stable supply of LNG for the shipping industry in North Sea & Baltic Sea,”  Abeynaike added.
