The Finnish shipping company ESL Shipping, part of Aspo, and Hamburg-based Nauticor, a unit of Linde, have signed a long-term contract for the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Swedish port of Oxelösund.

Under the deal,  Nauticor will provide LNG for ESL Shipping’s handy size bulk carriers Haaga and Viikki.

The vessels are the first of their kind to use LNG and started operations in the Baltic Sea region in October 2018.

Predominantly they will be used for the transport of raw materials between various ports in the Baltic Sea and North Sea.

Nauticor-chartered 7,500 cbm LNG bunker supply vessel Kairos will play a crucial role in the development of the tailor-made supply chain for the two vessels, according to a joint statement.

Furthermore, Nauticor will closely cooperate with its sister company AGA operating the Linde Group’s LNG terminal in Nynäshamn, Sweden.
