KC LNG to build bunkering facilities for CMAL

Scottish ferry owner Caledonian Maritime Assets has ordered two liquefied natural gas bunkering facilities from KC LNG.

Denmark-based KC LNG, a Kosan Crisplant’s division under Makeen Energy, expects to complete the bunkering facilities in July 2022.

The facilities will fuel two CMAL’s newbuild ferries, Scotland’s first such vessels, with LNG.

They will be located at the Port of Uig on the Isle of Skye and the Port of Ardrossan on the Firth of Clyde.

The facilities will have a 150 cubic meter LNG tank with the capability of delivering a bunkering flow of up to 100 cubic meters per hour, according to KC LNG.

In addition to the LNG bunkering facilities, the order also includes a five-year maintenance agreement.

To remind, the delivery of the two CMAL’s dual-fueled ferries, has been pushed back several times.

Previously, CMAL had expected to take delivery of the ships in early 2018.

The reason behind this is the financial collapse of the Ferguson Marine shipyard that took on the ferry job.

The vessels’ dual-fueled engine enables them to sail both on LNG and diesel.

The ships will be able to carry 127 cars or 16 HGVs, or a combination of both, and up to 1,000 passengers.
