Nauticor’s bunker vessel Kairos has supplied DEME’s offshore installation vessel Orion with LNG at the port of Rostock, Germany.
According to DEME, this is only the second ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation to take place in Germany and a first for the port of Rostock.
Orion is currently at the Liebherr construction yard in Rostock, where it is being outfitted with a 5,000-tonne capacity crane.
“Our recent fleet additions are unique in their market segments as the first vessels in our industry to run on LNG,” said Bart Verboomen, head of DEME’s technical department. “We want to make sure our fleet is future proof and exceeds the current environmental regulations. Therefore, most of our new vessels are equipped with dual-fuel engines, which are capable of running on LNG.”
