LNG partnership for Baltic region

In 2015 Furetank Rederi began retrofitting the tanker Fure West, pioneering the use of LNG as a marine fuel in Europe. In cooperation with the Gothenburg-based Gothia Tanker Alliance, four LNG-fuelled newbuildings were ordered and are currently under construction. These newbuildings are planned for commissioning in late 2018 and early 2019.
According to the LOI, Bomin Linde LNG will supply the Furetank Rederi vessels ship-to-ship with a new LNG bunker supply vessel, both in ports and potentially offshore, using DP2 equipment. The commissioning of this Klaipeda-based supply vessel, the largest of its kind to date, is scheduled for late 2018.
Sonja Nesshoever, director of the LNG portfolio at Bomin Linde LNG, said: “We're looking forward to developing a safe and flexible LNG supply chain in cooperation with a frontrunner like Furetank Rederi. As an important step forward to reduce costs for our clients and to optimise shipping routes, we'll also jointly explore the possibility of introducing LNG in lightering areas of the Baltic Sea.”
Lightering areas are designated zones that allow offshore bunkering outside port boundaries.

Bomin Linde LNG, a Hamburg-based provider of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with the Swedish shipowner Furetank Rederi to establish a long-term partnership for the supply of LNG in the Baltic Sea region.
