Skangas is celebrating its milestone completion of 1000 LNG bunkering operations in 2017, representing more than a 60% increase compared to previous years.
According to Skangas, the driving force behind this trend originated from growing demand for supply to new vessels, both through regular supply routes and through the spot market. These conditions have made LNG bunkering vessels very popular.
“As more and more operators convert their ships to clean fuel with LNG and dual-fuelled engines to power them, demand has risen significantly,” said Gunnar Helmen, Sales Manager - Marine for Skangas. “This is particularly true in European waters where, until recently, most of the traffic consisted of ferries and RoPax cruise ferries routinely traveling set routes. Today, the supply pattern is more diverse due to the use of a greater variety of vessels, that require different types of bunkering solutions. And we are responding directly by offering a number of solutions for this market.”
