Rotterdam, 15 September 2017

Stavanger, 15 September 2017: Skangas’ Coralius had her maiden voyage delivering LNG to their terminal in Øra, by Fredrikstad in Norway on 14 September. The vessel was loaded with Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from Skangas’ own production facility in Risavika, Stavanger.




The ship was built by Royal Bodewes and developed in close co-operation between the owners and Skangas. During her maiden delivery voyage, Coralius supplied Skangas’ industrial customers in the vicinity of Fredrikstad. Coralius as bunker vessel, holds state-of-the-art LNG transfer equipment on board.

“We are very content with further developing the marine LNG availability in Northern Europe by our new ship Coralius,” says Kimmo Rahkamo, CEO of Skangas. “We look forward to serving our existing and new customers wherever they need LNG by ship-to-ship. Today the technology and ship engines are sound for gas and we are more than ready to supply it by our European supply chain”, he concludes.
