Gasum scores Finnish LNG bunkering deal

Gasum has won a contract to supply LNG to the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency and the Finnish Border Guard.

The LNG and LBG supplier said in a statement it had won the contract in a competitive tendering process organized by the Finnish government central purchasing body, Hansel.

Gasum added it would supply liquefied natural gas during 2021-2022, while the framework agreement has an additional option for two years.

The Finland-based firm did not reveal any additional information.

Earlier this year, Gasum has teamed up with the Finnish Border Guard to test bio-LNG as fuel for the latter’s LNG-powered patrol vessel Turva.

The firm also supplies fuel to Arctia’s LNG-powered icebreaker Polaris.

“We have been supplying LNG to the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency and the Finnish Border Guard during the previous agreement period,” Jacob Granqvist, Gasum’s vice president maritime, said.

“Maritime transport plays a leading role in changing course towards a cleaner tomorrow. LNG complies with all the emission requirements and is highly energy-efficient,” he said.

“The framework arrangement enables government organizations to source LNG with a high level of supply security and with consideration for responsibility aspects,” Pasi Tainio, category manager at Hansel, said.

“LNG is better shipping fuel than oil for climate and this framework arrangement enables clients to also procure bio version of LNG,” Tainio said.
