Wartsila to supply equipment for new Shell-chartered LNG barge

Finnish engine maker Wärtsilä has secured a contract to supply the cargo handling system and cargo tanks for a new 3000-cbm LNG bunker barge to be chartered by Shell.

The full scope of Wärtsilä solutions comprises the cargo handling system, the cargo tanks, and installation of the cargo arrangement onboard the vessel, the company said in a statement on Thursday, adding that the order was booked in June.

The LNG barge will be owned by LNG Shipping, a consortium between Belgium based Victrol and CFT Corporation based in France. It is being built in Romania and will be outfitted in the Netherlands.

When delivered, it will be chartered by Shell Western LNG B.V., a unit of the Hague-based LNG giant, operating out of Rotterdam to provide the company with additional flexibility to bunker LNG fuelled ships, including vessels operating on Europe’s inland waterways.
