Gas Tanker: Pioneering LNG carrier

Dutch gas carrier operator Antony Veder has placed the world’s first directly-driven dual-fuel LNG carrier, the 12,344dwt Coral Energy, in service following her delivery from Germany’s Meyer Werft yard at Papenburg last year.

With a capacity of 15,600m3 and a specially-designed compatibility package, the Ice Class IA vessel can load LNG at all major world terminals. Classification society Bureau Veritas assigned the ship a sophisticated class notation, reflecting the vessel’s environmental friendliness and advanced control systems.

Developed in cooperation with charterer Skangass, Coral Energy is being used to deliver gas cargoes to remote communities in the Nordic region that, up till now, have had to depend on dirtier fuels. JS
