The vessel operates largely in the North Sea and the Skagerrak area. Coralius celebrated its 100th bunkering operation in just 18 months. This year, the vessel is scheduled to carry out more bunkering operations than last year.
In the statement, Gasum claims that it foresees an increase in the average amount of delivered stem, as it will perform bunkering operations on shuttle tankers and other bigger vessels. Coralius has increased its efficiency due to LNG bunkering operations becoming faster.
Kimmo Rahkamo, Vice President, natural gas and LNG, Gasum, said: “100 ship-to-ship bunkerings is a great milestone for Gasum as well as for our customers. With Coralius, we have been able to perform bunkering to different types of vessels, which is quite unique and demands us to be prepared for all types of vessels. The bunkering operations are swift and safe, and we have received great feedback from our customers. Coralius has definitely increased Gasum’s flexibility as an LNG supplier.”
