First LNG bunkering for cement tanker Greenland
LNG-powered cement tanker Greenland was bunkered on Saturday for the first time with the chilled fuel at the Ferus Smit Westerbroek Yard in the Netherlands.
The ship, which was recently launched at the yard, is in its last phase of construction and will be commissioned in the upcoming weeks, Dutch company Cryonorm Systems said in an emailed statement to LNG World News.
Cryonorm Systems was responsible for the construction and installation of the 130 cbm vertical LNG fuel system, inside the hull and in the bow of the ship.
According to the statement, Cryonorm will also supply the LNG fuel system for the sister ship of the LNG powered Greenland, currently under construction at the Ferus Smit yard (as shown in the image above).
LNG-powered Greenland is built for the joint venture JT cement, in which Erik Thun cooperates with KG Jebsen Cement.
The ship will be the world’s first dry cargo vessel with an LNG fueled propulsion system, according to Ferus Smit.
