Molgas bunkers Havila’s LNG-powered newbuild in Spain

Spain’s Molgas said it has recently supplied liquefied natural gas to the LNG-powered coastal cruise ship, Havila Castor, in the Cartagena port.

The Havila Voyages’ ferry received about 255 cbm of LNG from the Enagas-operated Cartagena regasification facility during the terminal-to-ship operation, Molgas, owned by French private equity firm InfraVia Capital Partners, said on Tuesday.

Molgas said it has joined forces with its Norwegian unit Gasnor, Spain’s Enagas, and the Cartagena port for the LNG bunkering operation.

Havila Castor is on its way to Norway following its delivery at Turkish shipbuilder Tersan last month.

According to its AIS data, the vessel was on Wednesday located in the North Sea and should arrive in Norway’s Bergen on Thursday.

Havila Voyages expects the vessel to start working on the coastal route Bergen-Kirkenes on May 10.

In Norway, Gasnor will provide LNG to Havila Castor as well as its sister ship Havila Capella.

Molgas completed last year a deal with LNG giant Shell to buy Norway’s LNG supplier Gasnor.

In addition, the Spanish firm recently acquired a controlling stake in Greece’s small-scale LNG firm, Blue Grid.

Molgas supplies 6TWh of LNG per year to over 200 industrial customers, 34 fueling stations, as well as a growing number of marine customers, by utilizing 2 LNG bunkering vessels and 9 satellite terminals across the Norwegian coastline, it previously said.
