Knutsen takes delivery of LNG bunkering newbuild in Spain

Spain’s Armon Gijon has delivered the 5,000-cbm LNG bunkering ship, Haugesund Knutsen, to Norway’s shipping firm Knutsen.

Knutsen said via social media it took delivery of the vessel on December 23.

The shipping firm claims this is the first small-scale LNG vessel ever built in Spain.

It did not provide any additional information.

Knutsen partnered with Enagas’ small-scale unit, Scale Gas, on the newbuild that will go on charter to LNG giant Shell and will operate from the port of Barcelona.

VesselsValue data suggests that the construction of the vessel was worth about $41.3 million.

Besides supplying LNG, the 92.75 meters long ship, with a beam of 16.90 meters and a draught of 4.25 meters, will also run on liquefied natural gas.

Italy’s Gas and Heat supplied two 2,500-cbm bilobe type C tanks for the vessel.
