Marine LNG Zeebrugge, Equinor Sign Bunkering Deal
Marine LNG Zeebrugge, a joint venture of the Gas4Sea partners – Engie, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK – has signed an agreement with Norwegian Equinor for supplying their four crude shuttle tankers with LNG as marine fuel in the port of Rotterdam, Mitsubishi said February 19.
The four planned dual fuel vessels are to come into service in early 2020; they will be operated by Equinor in northern European seas.
Marine LNG Zeebrugge will supply LNG using the LNG bunkering vessel Engie Zeebrugge which started operations in 2017. It is currently performing ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services in the port of Zeebrugge, in Belgium. It can hold 5,000 m3 of LNG, Mitsubishi said.
Gas4Sea was launched in 2016 to develop the use of LNG as marine fuels.
