Avenir pens three-year LNG bunkering deal with Destination Gotland

Avenir LNG said it has signed a three-year deal to bunker two LNG-powered vessels owned by Sweden’s Destination Gotland.

Under the deal, Avenir Marine, a unit of the London-based small-scale firm, will supply of up to 40,000 tons per year of LNG for the vessels Gotland and Visby.

Avenir Marine will use the 7,500-cbm Avenir Ascension for these operations. CIMC SOE delivered this bunkering and supply vessel earlier this year.

According to a statement by Avenir, the firm’s unit has already completed the first bunker delivery under this new agreement on June 8.

Deliveries would continue through to the second quarter of 2025, the joint venture of Stolt-Nielsen, Hoegh LNG, and Golar LNG said.

Peter Mackey, CEO of Avenir welcomed the deal with Destination Gotland, who has been a pioneer in the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel since 2018.

“In the coming months we will continue to expand our operations across the Baltic Sea,” he said.

Besides this move, Avenir also just started delivering LNG and bio-LNG to a newbuild RoPax ferry owned by Germany’s TT-Line in the northern port of Luebeck.

This truck-to-ship LNG and bio-LNG bunkering operation to TT-Line’s Nils Holgersson took place on June 10 at the Scandinavian quay of the Baltic Sea port.
