First Ice Class 1A Super LNG carrier named in Turku

Monday, 05 Feb 2018

The 18,000m3 LNG carrier Coral EnergICE, built by Neptun Werft in Rostock for Anthony Veder, has been named in Turku, Finland.

The 164m-long Coral EnergICE has an LNG capacity of 18,000m3

The vessel is the first LNG carrier to have Ice Class 1A Super notation and is the third Anthony Veder-owned ship built for long-term charter to Skangas, a supplier of LNG to marine and industrial customers across the Nordic region. Coral EnergICE is based on the 2012-built Coral Energy but incorporates a range of features enabling the vessel to provide year-round LNG deliveries to the Skangas terminal in Pori and the joint venture Manga terminal in the northern Finnish port of Tornio.
The hull of the Coral EnergICE is capable of breaking ice 1m thick and the ship’s dual-fuel engine and its auxiliaries will run principally on boil-off gas. To protect the crew against temperatures which can fall as low as -25°C, the vessel has shelters on deck with warmer platforms for the crew’s feet, whilst heat tracing on the doors ensures that they will always open, however low the temperature may fall.
