Elenger’s newbuild wraps up first STS LNG bunkering op in Estonia

Elenger Marine, part of Infortar, said it has completed the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation in Estonia with its newbuild vessel Optimus.

The bunkering operation, which also marked the first LNG supply for the recently completed vessel, took place at the Old City Harbour of Tallinn on Friday night.

Elenger also christened the vessel in this same port two days prior to this operation, following its arrival from Damen’s yard in Rotterdam.

During the first operation, the 99.8 meters long 6,000-cbm bunkering vessel delivered LNG to Tallink’s RoPax ferry Megastar.

Previously, the ferry only bunkered LNG in Estonia via the truck-to-ship method, Elenger said.

Elenger, the new trademark introduced by Eesti Gaas for its export markets, charters the vessel owned by Infortar. Tallink is also part of the latter.

Besides Megastar, Optimus will also provide LNG to Tallink’s new LNG-fueled RoPax ferry MyStar from spring 2022.

According to Elenger, Optimus is the first such ship in the region. It will work in the part of the Baltic Sea centered around the Gulf of Finland.

The vessel can bunker tankers, cargo ships, passenger vessels, and cruise ships in ports and in offshore waters, it said.
