Gas Entec gets Asia’s largest LNG bunkering vessel gig
Gas Entec, a unit of Atlantic Gulf & Pacific Company (AG&P), has secured a contract from Sembcorp Marine Integrated Yard (Sembcorp Marine).
Under the contract, Gas Entec will provide the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the cargo handling system for a 12,000 cubic meter LNG bunker vessel owned by Indah Singa Maritime, a unit of Mitsui OSK Lines, operating out of Singapore.
The LNG bunker vessel will be built at Sembcorp Marine Tuas Boulevard Yard in Singapore, where Gas Entec engineers will work with their counterparts to oversee the cargo handling project.
The vessel, measuring 112 meters in length and 22 meters in width, will use GTT Flex III membrane technology for the cargo containment tanks and will have dual-fuel engines running on LNG or marine diesel oil for cleaner propulsion.
The new ship will be the second LNG bunkering vessel in Singapore and is slated to start services in the port of Singapore after its delivery to Pavilion Energy in early 2021.
