Skangass’ time charted vessel, Coral Energy, has recently been loaded with LNG at Fluxys’ Zeebrugge LNG terminal.
LNG loading on the vessel - the world’s first direct driven dual-fuel ice-class 1A LNG carrier – forms part of an agreement between Skangass and Eni to supply Scandinavia with LNG sourced at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal. It also supports the EU’s programmes for clean industry.
The LNG loading operation forms part of Fluxys plan to develop the Zeebrugge LNG terminal into a hub for small scale LNG in northwest Europe. It demonstrated the advantages of LNG as a fuel of choice for both shipping and long-haul trucks, as well as the industrial uses of LNG.
Coral Energy will carry the LNG to Skangass’ LNG receiving terminal in Lysekil, Sweden. The LNG will be distributed to clients in Sweden by pipeline or trucks.
