Wilhelmsen to manage Avenir LNG’s bunkering trio

UK-based small-scale LNG player Avenir LNG has awarded the management of three LNG bunkering vessels to Wilhelmsen Ship Management.

The vessels included in this deal are the 20,000-cbm Avenir Achievement, and the 7,500-cbm Avenir Ascension and Avenir Aspiration, according to a statement by Wilhelmsen.

The three vessels were previously managed by Norway’s FSRU player Hoegh LNG, one of three blue-chip shareholders in Avenir LNG alongside Stolt Nielsen and Golar LNG.

Avenir LNG is a new customer to Wilhelmsen.

The Oslo-stock listed company currently has a total fleet of five tankers in the water.

The latest vessel to join the fleet was Avenir Achievement in May last year.

It also owns a small-scale LNG terminal in Sardinia, with assets/partnership now operating in China, Malaysia, the Mediterranean, Baltic Sea, and the Caribbean.

“Hoegh LNG have contributed enormously to the success of Avenir LNG since the company was established in 2018, paving a solid foundation for the future. We applaud all their hard work and Hoegh LNG will continue to be key part of our growth trajectory as a key shareholder,” Peter Mackey, Avenir LNG CEO, said in the statement.

“The award to Wilhelmsen, one of the world’s top ship managers with global reach, represents a new milestone on our journey and we have full confidence in the added value they can deliver,” he said.
