Furetank, Erik Thun, and Älvtank, all members of the Gothia Tanker Alliance, have entrusted Skangas with supplying their existing and future vessels with liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Combined, these Swedish shipping companies have invested in six gas-run tankers, which, in turn, will get their bunker from Skangas either with the use of tank trucks, at berth in a port, or off the coast thanks to the company's bunkering vessel Coralius (primarily operating in the area in and around Gothenburg, the Danish Skaw, and southern Norway).
"For newbuilds we focus on energy efficiency and innovations. Together with our choice of cleaner fuel we are experiencing a major reduction in our CO2 emissions, not to forget the reductions in particulate matters and NOX," Lars Höglund, Managing Director, Furetank, said.
Tommy Mattila, Director Sales and Marketing, Skangas, added, "Being trusted to supply LNG also for the future vessels is a confirmation that we are delivering as expected. We will continue investing and improving to meet ship owners' demands and expectations.
