TT-Line, Avenir undertake STS LNG bunkering in Malaysia
German ferry operator TT-Line and UK-based Avenir LNG successfully organised the first LNG ship-to-ship bunkering operation for the LNG-fuelled ro-pax ferry Peter Pan in Malaysia, Avner LNG said on January 3 in a LinkedIn post.
The ferry received LNG from Avenir’s small-scale bunker vessel Avenir Advantage at the Pengerang Anchorage, Malaysia on December 19. The bunker vessel is owned by Avenir and provides LNG bunker services for a range of customers through its charter and partnership with Petronas.
“We are pleased to continue to support TT-Line with their LNG and bio-LNG requirements and broaden our relationship outside of Europe,” Peter Mackey, CEO of Avenir LNG, said. “Our fleet of LNG bunker vessels and global network allows us to support customers at various bunker hubs around the world. We are looking forward to continuing to support TT-Line once the vessel has arrived in its trading area, the Baltic Sea.”
Peter Pan is the second vessel of TT-Line’s fleet to receive LNG delivery from Avenir. A first LNG and bio-LNG delivery was performed for TT- Line’s other LNG-fuelled ro-pax ferry Nils Holgersson in June 2022, in the Port of Lubeck using trucks, Avner LNG said.
