ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK have been selected by Norwegian energy group Statoil to be their LNG marine fuel supplier in the port of Rotterdam, in the Netherlands, for four crude shuttle tankers.
The four planned dual fuel vessels are to come into service in early 2020 and they will be operated by Statoil in Northern European seas.
Gas4Sea will supply LNG using the ENGIE Zeebrugge, which started operations earlier this year. She is currently performing regular ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services in the port of Zeebrugge, in Belgium.
In mid-June, the ENGIE Zeebrugge performed in the port its first deliveries of LNG to two new gas-propelled pure car and truck carriers (PCTCs) of UECC.
Gas4Sea is a brand jointly launched by ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK in 2016, to develop the use of LNG as a sustainable, reliable, safe and cost-effective alternative to conventional oil-based marine fuels. Its purpose and ambition is to accompany the shipping sector in the upcoming transition towards a greener maritime environment, in Europe and worldwide.
