Peninsula completes its first Algericas LNG bunkering op

Marine fuel supplier Peninsula has completed its first liquefied natural gas bunkering operation with the 12,500-cbm Levante LNG in the Spanish port of Algericas.

During the operation, Levante LNG supplied Royal Caribbean’s cruise ship Icon of the Seas, according to a statement by Peninsula issued on December 3.

“Having already undertaken numerous LNG bunkering operations in other ports across the world, the addition of the port of Algeciras will help Peninsula to provide lower carbon solutions to the growing number of LNG-powered vessels joining the global fleet,” the firm said.

In November, Royal Caribbean International, a unit of Royal Caribbean, took delivery of its LNG-powered Icon of the Seas from Finland’s Meyer Turku.

Royal Caribbean International and Meyer Turku claim this is the world’s largest cruise ship.

Prior to this bunkering operation in Algericas, Peninsula started delivering LNG as fuel to vessels with Levante LNG in Gibraltar.

The first delivery took place in Gibraltar on November 4 and Levante LNG supplied Royal Caribbean’s cruise vessel Silver Nova.

Scale Gas, a unit of Spain’s Enagas, and Peninsula ordered this LNG bunkering ship in June 2021 at South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo.

Hyundai Mipo launched the LNG bunkering ship in February last year.

Levante LNG arrived at its Mediterranean home at the end of September, while Peninsula also won an LNG bunkering operator license by the government of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar Port Authority.
