Gasum marks Coralius LNG bunkering record

Finland-based Gasum said its chartered LNG bunkering vessel Coralius recently completed a record number of transfers during a daily operation.

The bunkering vessel delivered LNG to four oil/chemical tankers within twelve hours during the last day of November. The ship-to-ship bunkering took place in Gothenburg, Sweden.

This marked a new record for the 5,800-cbm bunkering vessel, enabling the quartet to continue their operation and voyages in the Baltic area, Gasum said in a statement.

The LNG-powered vessels in question are Ramelia and Thun Venern operated by Furetank and Preem’s Tern Ocean and Thun Evolve.

“So far Coralius has done several hundred ship-to-ship LNG bunkerings. She has a very experienced crew and this day in Gothenburg has really proven her capability”, said Jacob Granqvist, Gasum sales director maritime.

“The availability of LNG is not even a question when we see this kind of efficiency and achievement,” he said.
