First ship-to-ship bunkering on Gothenburg roads
The delivery signals beginning of new era to use bunker vessels to serve the shipping market

Skangas have successfullybunkered the product tanker Ternsund on Gothenburg roads, Sweden on September 3rd. The bunkering operation is a significant milestone for Skangas, as it represents several historic firsts. Not only is it the first Ship-to-ship LNG bunkering to the vessel Ternsund, it is the first Ship-to-ship bunkering to be executed by companies Skangas and Anthony Veder, and the first to take place in the Gothenburg area.


Known for its in-depth experience in delivering LNG to the marine market in Northern Europe, the delivery by Skangas to the Ternsund marks the start of a new era: using bunker vessels to serve the shipping market. Until now, deliveries were made using trucks and onshore terminals.

Skangas will start operating a new bunker vessel in early 2017, which will enable swift, safe and efficient bunkering of LNG. Until then, Skangas is delivering LNG to customers, such as NEOT (North European Oil Trading), using the Coral Energy, Anthony Veders’ small scale LNG carrier. The 15600 cbm LNG carrier is normally used to feed LNG to distribution terminals in Europe. By using the Coral Energy, Skangas provides LNG bunkering to ship owners throughout Northern Europe. The bunkering in Gothenburg was performed in close cooperation between Skangas, ship owners Terntank and Anthony Veder, the Port of Gothenburg, and the company NEOT.


“We are very proud to be one of the first in the world to bunker LNG ship-to-ship. We strongly believe that LNG will rapidly become the fuel solution for forward-thinking ship owners”, says Tor Morten Osmundsen, CEO of Skangas. “We have developed an LNG infrastructure to serve the Nordic Industrial and Marine sectors, and make LNG available for customers who are willing to switch to a much cleaner fuel than traditionally used. The bunkering operation in Gothenburg clearly indicates that the market is developing and that our efforts to make LNG readily available are paying off.”

The new Skangas bunker vessel M/T Coralius will have a capacity of 5800 cbm. It will provide both Ship-to-ship bunkering and feed LNG terminals throughout Europe.
