Dutch LNG supplier Titan LNG has completed the largest LNG bunkering in the world involving Heerema Marine Contractors’ new semi-submersible crane vessel
The dual-fuel crane ship Sleipnir, that was just completed
in Singapore, was supplied with over 3,000 metric tons of the chilled fuel
offshore Sumatra, South East Asia.
This is the largest quantity of LNG that has ever been
bunkered and proves that this upcoming fuel is available anywhere now, Titan
“I’m extremely proud of the Titan team that has successfully
completed the largest LNG bunkering in the world. It was a complex project to
supply this eight-legged innovative crane vessel, the Sleipnir,” Niels den
Nijs, CEO Titan LNG, commented.
“Titan LNG looks forward to supplying Heerema with more LNG
in the future to fulfill our mission of lowering harmful emissions of the
marine and industrial sector.”
Titan LNG chartered the Coral Fraseri, the newest addition
of the Anthony Veder small scale LNG pool of vessels, for this operation. The
ship loaded in Singapore at the SLNG terminal where Titan LNG sourced the fuel
from Pavilion Gas. The Coral Fraseri followed the Sleipnir offshore and
performed a ship-to-ship operation to cool down and fill the tanks.
Built at Sembcorp Marine’s Tuas Boulevard Yard, Sleipnir has
a 220-meter by 102-meter reinforced deck area and can accommodate 400 persons.
It will be deployed globally for installing and removing jackets, topsides,
deep-water foundations, moorings and other offshore structures.
