Gasum expands LNG bunkering presence with first Hamburg STS fuellings

Gasum has announced it has made its first ship-to-ship (STS) LNG bunkerings in the German Port of Hamburg.

The fuellings were completed with the 5,800 cubic metre capacity Coralius last week.

On Tuesday (24 October), the Nordic energy company supplied MSC Cruises’ MSC Euribia – and this was followed the next day by the bunkering of Van Oord’s hopper dredger, VOX Ariane.

In a statement issued today (30 October), Gasum said its Maritime Sales Team and the crew of the Coralius reported that both operations went ‘very smoothly’ with ship crews, port authorities, pilots and agents.

‘Gasum is happy to support two such great vessels and companies in their goals to reduce emissions from their operations by providing cleaner energy for them,’ said Jacob Granqvist, Vice President, Maritime at Gasum. ‘We would like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in making these first ship-to-ship bunkerings in Hamburg a success.’
