“These were the first ever LNG bunker deliveries in the port of Travemünde. This achievement was made possible through a well-coordinated collaboration between Wallenius SOL our Maritime and Logistics Teams, Sirius Shipping, the Port of Lübeck, Sartori & Berger and BowWave Consulting. Thank you all involved in this project for your engagement.

“The new delivery location, Lübeck-Travemünde, shows great promise for regular bunker operations, and we are eagerly anticipating our next deliveries,” Gasum said.

The bunkering operation took place on April 29 and 30 when a total of 700 mt of LNG was supplied by Gasum’s long-term chartered bunker vessel Coralius to Wallenius Sol’s vessels Baltic Enabler and Botnia Enabler.

Wallenius Sol took delivery of the two ships in 2022. The sister vessels each have a deadweight of 28,000 tons.

The multi-fuel vessels have the capacity to run on LNG, LBG, diesel, and synthetic diesel. The 1A Super ice class ships have a cargo capacity of 6,442 lane meters (962 TEU) with room for trailers, containers, industrial loads, and high or heavy project loads.
