Norway-based LNG terminal operator Skangas said Monday its new liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel, Coralius, would be delivered in June.

The Coralius, built by the shipyard Royal Bodewes in the Netherlands, is owned by a joint venture between Dutch Anthony Veder and Swedish company Sirius Shipping.

The Skangas-chartered LNG bunkering vessel has a cargo capacity of 5,800-cbm and is 99.6 meters long. It has a Finnish/Swedish Ice Class 1A.

“LNG as marine fuel becomes even more accessible in our area by ship-to-ship bunkering,” Tor Morten Osmundsen, Chief Executive of Skangas said in a statement.

“Currently we bunker by truck and directly from our terminals, along the coast. From June this year, however, our customers can experience swifter and more flexible bunkering operations than ever,” he added.

The ships’ main operation area will be from the Kiel Canal to mid-Norway, including part of the North Sea.

As reported in October last year, Skangas will also use the Coralius to supply the chilled fuel to Statoil’s platform supply vessels and tugs along the Norwegian west coast.
