The vessel will mainly operate from the Kiel Canal to mid-Norway, including part of the North Sea. It is flexible in terms of where it operates, and can bunker LNG both in port and at sea. It is owned by Sirius Veder Gas AB – a joint venture (JV) between Anthony Veder (the Netherlands) and Sirius Shipping (Sweden) – and constructed by the Royal Bodewes shipyard in the Netherlands.
The vessel will be operated by Sirius Rederi AB of Sweden, has a cargo capacity of 5800 m3, is 99.6 m long, and holds a Finnish/Swedish Ice Class 1A.
The CEO of Skangas, Tor Morten Osmundsen, said: “LNG as marine fuel becomes even more accessible in our area by ship-to-ship bunkering.
“Currently we bunker by truck and directly from our terminals, along the coast. From June this year, however, our customers can experience swifter and more flexible bunkering operations than ever.”
