Shell Western LNG B.V. has announced the arrival of a state-of-the-art LNG bunker vessel, the Cardissa, which has a capacity to hold around 6500 m3 of LNG fuel. The vessel enables Shell to serve customers with LNG fuel from the Gate terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to locations throughout Europe.
Shell has also finalised a long-term agreement with a joint venture (JV) between Victrol NV and CFT to charter an LNG bunker barge with a capacity to carry 3000 m3 of LNG fuel. The LNG bunker barge will operate out of Rotterdam.
Steve Hill, Executive Vice President of Shell Energy, said: “LNG as a marine fuel has an important role to play in the future energy mix […] With these bunker vessels, as well as the Gate terminal, Shell is demonstrating its commitment to building a robust and reliable supply chain to meet customer needs. With tougher emissions regulations on the horizon, we will continue to work closely with our customers and partners on cleaner energy solutions.”
