Anthony Veder has announced that its Coral Methane has successfully carried out her first LNG bunkering operation on the world’s first LNG-powered cruise ship at Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
Coral Methane fuelled AIDAnova, the newest ship from AIDA Cruises, which made history as the cruise industry’s first ship to be powered at sea and in port by the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel.
Coral Methane is a 7500 m3 vessel that has been modified from an ethylene/LNG carrier to an LNG bunker vessel for Shell, who are supplying the LNG.
“We believe LNG is today’s most sustainable marine fuel. The delivery of Coral Methane as an LNG bunker vessel, in partnership with Shell, underlines our dedication to LNG and marks the next step in our contribution to a sustainable supply chain,” says Klaas Kerssemakers, Chief Operating Officer of Anthony Veder. “The success of this project is due to an excellent cooperation with all parties involved, from the engineering phase up to and including our first LNG bunkering operation.”
