LNG bunker vessel, Alice Cosulich has set sail for Europe from Qidong, China. The Fratelli Cosulich-owned, 8 200 m3 capability vessel is on a long-term time constitution settlement to Titan, the unbiased provider of fresh fuels.
Alice Cosulich will probably be operational in Europe from early December 2023 and will probably be instantly busy facilitating provide. The bunkering vessel has an LNG and liquified biomethane (Bio-LNG) bunkering capability of 8200 m3 and can function predominantly within the ARA space for now.
The addition of Alice Cosulich to Titan’s fleet will increase the pliability of its clear gas operations. This new addition to the fleet will allow higher loading efficiencies ¬– bigger gas parcels will be delivered and higher combos for numerous bunkering will be made, making scheduling simpler with much less dependence on reloading slots.
As well as, Alice Cosulich is well-suited to performing extra advanced operations like cooldowns and gas-ups of assorted sorts of vessels, from automobile carriers and container vessels to cruise ships and tankers.
“We welcome Alice Cosulich to our increasing fleet. Because the European marketplace for different fuels continues to develop, she is going to considerably improve our LNG and Bio-LNG bunkering capabilities, enabling us to produce LNG to even bigger vessels. Alice Cosulich is among the most versatile vessels within the fleet, making certain we are able to ship two bigger parcels, provide to membrane containment techniques, and extra advanced operations like cooldowns and gas-ups,” commented Michael Schaap, Industrial Director Marine at Titan.
The long-term constitution of the Alice Cosulich additional expands Titan’s current LNG bunker provide functionality. Titan already owns and operates two FlexFuelers within the ARA, each with a 1,500 m³ capability and 500 m3/hour switch price. Gas has additionally been safely delivered in Indonesia, Singapore, the Mediterranean, Cape Verde Islands, and Caribbean by Titan’s constitution of LNG bunkering vessels on brief/medium phrases for particular initiatives. As well as, day by day truck-to-ship (TTS) operations are carried out in numerous ports within the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France and UK.
Titan recognises the LNG pathway to zero-emissions by way of LNG, Bio-LNG and hydrogen-derived e-methane (e-LNG) as a sensible, protected and out there route which affords environmental advantages over oil-based fuels. The corporate additionally recognises that decarbonisation would require a variety of options. When different different fuels are able to scale, Titan will add them into its provide portfolio, and collaborate with shipowners and operators to create clear gas supply packages which can be tailor-made, protected, and cost-effective.
