Gasum bunkers UECC LNG car carrier in Sweden

Finland-based Gasum said it bunkered United European Car Carriers’ vessel Auto Energy with liquefied natural gas in Malmo, Sweden.

The 5,800-cbm LNG bunkering ship Coralius supplied the fuel to the car cariier via a ship-to-ship operation at the Copenhagen Malmo Port.

According to Gasum, this is the first ever such operation for the Swedish port.

The port has joined the growing Gasum network of European ports qualified for LNG deliveries, it said.

UECC, a venture consisting of NYK and Wallenius Lines, held an official naming ceremony for the Auto Energy in Malmo back in 2017.

The dual-fuel pure car and truck carrier has a capacity of transporting 4,000 vehicles.

It mainly operates between Zeebrugge and the St. Petersburg area.
