Petronas, Titan bunker LNG-powered Salamanca in Malaysia

Malaysian energy giant Petronas and Dutch supplier Titan LNG have teamed up to bunker liquefied natural gas to the recently delivered LNG-powered ferry, Salamanca.

The Petronas-chartered Avenir Advantage supplied liquefied natural gas to the ferry owned by Stena RoRo and chartered by Brittany Ferries at the anchorage area of Pengerang in Malaysia, according to Titan LNG.

Titan LNG said the parcel purchased by the Dutch firm was delivered on December 17.

It did not provide any additional information.

French shipping firm Brittany Ferries took delivery of Stena RoRo’s LNG-powered ferry Salamanca on November 30. Also, China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Weihai built the vessel.

The ship is currently on its maiden voyage to Europe.

Salamanca is the next ship in Brittany Ferries’ fleet renewal program and the first to go on LNG. Its sister ship Santona should join Brittany Ferries in 2023 as well.

The new Ro-pax vessels will operate services between the UK and Spain.

In September, work has also started on LNG bunkering terminals in the ports of Bilbao and Santander. These will store fuel for Salamanca and Santona.

In addition, Brittany Ferries and Stena RoRo signed another deal earlier this year for two new LNG-powered ferries, boosting the total to four.

Both of the 194 meters long hybrid vessels will sail on LNG but they will also feature batteries and shore-side power. Jinling will construct these vessels as well.

These vessels will join Brittany Ferries in 2024 and 2025 and will carry passengers on routes connecting France with the UK.
