The world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel, which will be chartered by the French energy giant Total and owned and operated by MOL, has completed sea trials, according to Bureau Veritas official.  

Following delivery, the vessel will be positioned in the Marseille-Fos area in France.

This bunker vessel is being built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding in China, and will have a capacity of 18,600 cubic meters for a length of about 135 meters and will be fitted with the Mark III membrane containment system provided by French company GTT.

This vessel has been specifically designed to supply LNG bunker in the Mediterranean area to a wide range of vessels, including containerships, tankers, ferries and large cruise ships. The vessel will use LNG as propulsion fuel and integrate a complete re-liquefaction of the boil-off gas.

The newbuild vessel will be operated under the French flag by MOL, jointly with the Marseille-based Gazocean.
