KNOT takes delivery of second LNG-powered shuttle tanker chartered by Eni

Norway-based Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers (KNOT) has taken delivery of the second LNG-powered shuttle tanker that will go on a long-term charter with a unit of Italy’s Eni.

KNOT is a joint venture by Trygve Seglem’s TS Shipping Invest, the parent of Knutsen, and Japan’s NYK.

NYK said in a statement that South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) delivered the 277.54 meters long LNG-powered Sindre Knutsen on August 30.

This follows the delivery of its sister vessel Frida Knutsen, also chartered by Eni.

In February 2020, KNOT signed charter deals with Eni for two 124,000-dwt LNG-powered shuttle tankers.

The new tanker will start serving Eni Trade & Biofuels in the North Sea and Barents Sea under the charter deal.

Besides LNG fuel, the vessel features a VOC recovery system and an energy storage system, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions, NYK said.
