The technology group Wartsila will supply the cargo handling system and cargo tanks for a new 3000 cubic metre capacity LNG bunker barge. The vessel will be owned by LNG Shipping, a consortium between Belgium based Victrol and CFT Corporation based in France. The barge is being built in Romania and will be outfitted in the Netherlands. When delivered, it will be chartered by Shell Western LNG B.V. (Shell), operating out of Rotterdam to provide the company with additional flexibility to bunker LNG fuelled ships, including vessels operating on Europe’s inland waterways. The order with Wartsila, was booked in June.

The full scope of Wartsila solutions comprises the cargo handling system, the cargo tanks, and installation of the cargo arrangement onboard the vessel.

“Undoubtedly the award of this contract was based largely on Wartsila’s vast experience and broad in-house know-how concerning gas systems. Our strength throughout the LNG value chain is well known, and this new bunker vessel provides yet another link to this chain,” says Timo Koponen, Vice President, Flow & Gas Solutions, Wartsila Marine Solutions.

“Wartsila is a leader in gas handling technology and we are pleased to have them as a partner in this newbuild project. Furthermore, their ability to provide the equipment on a fast-track basis is important for the delivery scheduling of this barge,” says Gisele Maes Buelens, Victrol NV.

Wartsila Gas Solutions offers innovative and energy efficient systems for a number of gas segment applications, including for all types of gas carriers, terminals, and fuel gas supply systems. Wartsila is recognized as being at the forefront of developing innovative, safe, efficient and environmentally sustainable solutions, with an emphasis on ease of operation and minimum life cycle costs.
