FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd and Shell Singapore Pte. Ltd., has named its newest addition to the fleet, the LNG bunker vessel FueLNG Venosa, at a ceremony held today at the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Co., Ltd., in Ulsan, South Korea.
Ms Aw Kah Peng, Chairman of Shell Companies in Singapore, who is the godmother of the vessel, said, “The FueLNG Venosa will support a growing number of LNG-fueled ships that call at the Singapore port, contributing to the country’s ambition of becoming a regional hub for LNG bunkering.
As an industry, we must work together towards reducing emissions from shipping, and LNG is a key enabler in this transition.”
Built in Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Co., Ltd. and chartered from Korea Line LNG Co., Ltd., the FueLNG Venosa is a state-of-the-art LNG bunker vessel with a total capacity of 18,000 cbm, bringing significant economies of scale.
The vessel is designed to facilitate safe and quick turnaround of vessels carrying out simultaneous cargo handling and bunkering operations; and is capable of bunkering different types of LNG fuel tanks.
Besides bunkering operations, FueLNG Venosa shall provide gas-up and cool-down services to LNG carriers and LNG-fueled vessels after dry docking in Singapore or enroute to loading operations.
Mr Saunak Rai, General Manager of FueLNG, said, “We are thrilled to add the FueLNG Venosa to our fleet, which will help us cater to the growing demand for LNG bunkering services in the Asia Pacific region. The FueLNG Venosa will further enhance our capability to provide our customers with safe, reliable, and efficient LNG bunkering solutions.”
