Coralius enters service

The LNG bunkering and feeder vessel - owned by Anthony Veder and Sirius Shipping, and chartered by Skangas - took its first shipment on September 14th.

The 5,800 m3 of capacity 1A ice class Coralius was loaded with Liquefied Natural Gas at Skangas' terminal in the Norwegian Øra, supplied from the company's production facility in Risavika.  Afterwards, she headed for Fredrikstad.

"We are extremely happy to further increase the availability of LNG in North Europe. We're looking forward to serving our existing and future clients with ship-to-ship bunkering," Kimmo Rahkamo, CEO, Skangas, commented.

He then added, "The technology used on-board the ship as well as its engines are running on gas just fine. We're more than ready to use our supply chain to bring more gas to the market."

Skangas aims to cover two sectors of the small-scale LNG market with Coralius - ship-to-ship bunkering, as well as feeder deliveries from hubs to smaller terminals in North Europe.

Since some time now, the company has also been operating another similar ship, the 15,600 m3 of capacity 1A ice class Coral Energy. In the near future, Skangas will take delivery of Coral Energice (18,000 m3; 1A Super ice class).
