TGE Marine signed two further contracts for LNG bunker ship new buildings
21 Jan 2015
In December 2014, TGE Marine Gas Engineering signed the contract for one firm and one optional vessel for the design and supply of the cargo handling system, LNG fuel gas system and LNG cargo tanks for a LNG bunker ship of 6,500 m3 capacity with STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Co., Korea. The ship was ordered by Shell and is scheduled to be delivered in 2016. The bunker vessel shall operate from Rotterdam port and serve clients operating in the ECA zones of the North and Baltic Seas.
The second contract was signed for the 5,800 m3 capacity LNG bunker ship “Coralius” with TGE’s long standing client Anthony Veder group through the newly formed JV Sirius Veder Gas AB. The ship has been long term chartered by Skangass and shall serve the Skagerrak, Kattegat and Baltic Sea areas from the beginning of 2017.
“We are extremely pleased to have been selected by STX/Shell and Sirius Veder/Skangass as supplier for the gas handling system and cargo tanks” commented Manfred Küver, TGE Marine’s CEO. “All three currently contracted LNG bunker ship newbuildings will be equipped with a TGE gas plant which underlines our leading market position in this new segment.”
