E&S Tankers’ new ship bunkered with LNG in Antwerp

Dutch bunker supplier Titan has carried out liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation for E&S Tankers, a Germany-based joint venture between shipping companies Essberger Tankers and Stolt Tankers.

The bunkering operation took place at the port of Antwerp on January 15, 2024.

Titan’s vessel, FlexFueler001, delivered 110 MT of LNG to the Liselotte Essberger, marking a milestone as it was the first time Titan bunkered a vessel belonging to E&S Tankers.

“This operation underscores our dedication to sustainable shipping practices and showcases our commitment to environmentally friendly solutions. We’re proud to collaborate with E&S Tankers and look forward to furthering our shared mission,” Titan said in an update.

The 6,600 dwt Liselotte Essberger is the first of four new LNG-powered parcel chemical tankers ordered by E&S Tankers.

The newbuilding was named during its first visit to Hamburg in December 2023.
