The first European-built LNG bunkering vessel, Coralius completed its first ship-to-ship bunkering operation with the Furetank Rederi’s retrofitted tanker Fure West. 

The operation took place on international waters, Northern Kattegat, in the middle of the sea between Frederikshavn, Denmark and Gothenburg, Sweden, Skangas, the Coralius charterer said in a statement.

In 2015 the Furetank Rederi retrofitted the tanker pioneering the use of LNG as marine fuel in Europe.

The receiving vessel, Fure West, is an oil and chemical tanker with a length of 144 meters, operating mainly in the Baltic and Kattegat area.

Skangas expects the LNG demand for ships to increase significantly in next few years as responsible shipping companies are seeking cleaner fuel alternatives.
