Peninsula, the leading independent global supplier of marine energy, has successfully completed the supply of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as a marine fuel to Singapore-based, Eastern Pacific Shipping’s (EPS), vessel.
The delivery took place on 29-30th November at the Gibraltar Port’s Western Anchorage. Peninsula’s Levante LNG, the company’s first purpose built 12,500m3 LNG bunker vessel, supplied EPS’ Suezmax crude oil tanker with approximately 3,500m3 of LNG.
Nacho de Miguel, Peninsula’s Head of Alternative Fuels & Sustainability said: “EPS vessels like the Starway and her sister, the Greenway, the world’s first LNG fuelled Suezmax tanker, are paving the way for a lower carbon future. Through our investment in assets like the Levante LNG we can close the supply chain loop to give these vessels access to lower-carbon fuels in the world’s leading ports. I want to thank EPS for partnering with Peninsula to help power them towards a more sustainable future.”
Capt. Suraj Sundaresan, General Manager, Operations at EPS added: “Peninsula bridges shipowners like us who are at the forefront of the industry’s energy transition, and Ports who are evolving to host alternative-fuel powered vessels. Our vision to lower emissions is mirrored in Peninsula’s desire to provide lower carbon options today. The availability of low-carbon fuel supply is incredibly important. As the demand for alternative fuels towards decarbonisation increases, we rely on suppliers like Peninsula to help keep our state-of-the-art alternative-fuelled ships moving.”
