Gasum’s Coralius reaches bunkering milestone in Rotterdam

Published by , Editor

Gasum’s LNG bunker vessel, Coralius, has made its first bunkering in the port and refining area of Rotterdam. The operation in question saw the Coralius bunker LNG to the vessel Bit Viking.

This milestone in the Coralius’ ship-to-ship bunkering history is significant as it proves the vessel’s ability and availability to perform bunkering operations in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp area (ARA).

“It’s time to celebrate,” says Kimmo Rahkamo, Vice President, natural gas and LNG, Gasum. “Finally, being able to bunker our clients in the ARA area increases LNG availability and security for the LNG fuelled fleet. The amount of LNG driven vessels is growing rapidly globally, and we will definitely be part of the growth in being present where LNG is needed,” he concludes.

“We are happy with this opportunity to get LNG by ship-to-ship bunkering also in the Port of Rotterdam. Our vessel Bit Viking converted to LNG already in 2011. Since then we have operated on LNG about 97% of the time, mainly supported by Gasum. We would like to continue on this path and consequently we are depending on reliable and flexible LNG supplies,” says Anders Hermansson, Technical Manager of Tarbit Shipping.
