TOKYO, Oct 10, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Gas4Sea partners - ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK - have been selected by Norwegian multinational energy group Statoil to be their LNG marine fuel supplier in the port of Rotterdam, in the Netherlands, for four crude shuttle tankers.
The four planned dual fuel vessels are to come into service in early 2020; they will be operated by Statoil in Northern European seas.
Gas4Sea will supply LNG using the ENGIE Zeebrugge which started operations earlier this year. She is currently performing regular ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services in the port of Zeebrugge, in Belgium.
LNG Bunkering vessel (LBV) ENGIE Zeebrugge holds an LNG capacity of 5,000 m3 and is designed to serve a full range of shipping customers, in Zeebrugge as well as neighbouring ports.
Gas4Sea is a commercial brand jointly launched by ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK in 2016 to develop the use of LNG as a sustainable, reliable, safe and cost-effective alternative to conventional oil-based marine fuels. Its purpose and ambition is to accompany the shipping sector in the upcoming transition towards a greener maritime environment, in Europe and worldwide.
ENGIE is committed to taking on the major challenges of the energy revolution, towards a world more decarbonised, decentralised and digitalised.
The Group aims to become the leader of this new energy world by focusing on three key activities for the future: low carbon generation in particular from natural gas and renewable energy, energy infrastructure and efficient solutions adapted to all its customers (individuals, businesses, territories, etc.). Innovation, digital solutions and customer satisfaction are the guiding principles of ENGIE's development.
ENGIE is active in around 70 countries, employs 150,000 people worldwide and achieved revenues of Euro66.6 billion in 2016. The Group is listed on the Paris and Brussels stock exchanges (ENGI) and is represented in the main financial indices (CAC 40, BEL 20, DJ Euro Stoxx 50, Euronext 100, FTSE Eurotop 100, MSCI Europe) and non-financial indices (DJSI World, DJSI Europe and Euronext Vigeo Eiris - World 120, Eurozone 120, Europe 120, France 20, CAC 40 Governance). www.engie.com/en/
