Nordic energy company Gasum completes its first LNG bunkering in Emden
In Emden, Germany, the Nordic energy company Gasum has completed its first LNG bunkering service.
The company noted that its Coralius bunkering vessel supplied SIEM Confucius, the world's largest LNG-powered car carrier, with LNG bunkers. The activity continues the extension of Gasum's bunkering services to continental Europe, the company said in its statement.
The port of Emden, located in northwestern Germany, is one of Europe's most important car shipping ports and the newest area of expansion for Gasum's bunkering operations.
SIEM Confucius operates trans-Atlantic services and every 50 days its daily route involves the USA, Mexico and back to the port of Emden.
Coralius proved its availability in the ARA region (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp) by bunkering at the port of Rotterdam as early as the end of June.
Coralius recently extended its services further west and continental Europe with its main operating area in Skagerrak, thereby making LNG more available to companies still operating beyond the Nordic and Baltic Seas.
