LNG Vessel to Support Lithuania’s Klaipedos Nafta Project from 2017
Bomin Linde LNG said at HHP Insight presstime that its plans for a liquefied natural gas bunker vessel are “progressing rapidly” – a tender process has entered the final phase and “the vessel is expected to be ordered in the third quarter this year and will become operational in 2017.”
Bomin Linde said earlier this year that it is working with Lithuania’s Klaipedos Nafta, operator of the first full scale LNG terminal in the Baltic Sea region, to jointly develop the regional LNG fuel market (HHP Insight, February 19).
“This state-of-the-art LNG bunker supply vessel will provide bunkering services in the entire Baltic and North Sea. Besides LNG bunkering the vessel will also transport LNG to other LNG terminals and to the LNG reloading station in Klaipeda, which is being developed by 2017 by Klaipedos Nafta,” Bomin Linde said today.
7,000 Cubic Meters, and Versatile
The new bunker vessel is to have a total capacity of up to 7,000 cubic meters, and “a powerful set of adjustable pumps and onboard re-liquefaction equipment…
“The vessel will be able to serve a broad set of client vessels with different tank types and capacities. The propulsion and steering system is designed to be highly maneuverable so Bomin Linde LNG can serve client vessels with short duration port stays in a very flexible way.”Contact information is only available to premium subscribers.
