Delivery of the first Polish - built LNG carrier

Remontowa SA delivered environmental friendly and technically sophisticated gas carrier to Dutch Owner. The ship has been ordered from Remontowa SA by Dutch operator, Rotterdam-based Anthony Veder Rederijzaken BV and built at REMONTOWA Group's Northern Shipyard (Stocznia Polnocna SA). Anthony Veder was originally asked to build a small LNG carrier on behalf of Norwegian LNG distributor Gasnor in 2006. The diesel/gas-electric driven, multipurpose gas carrier, of the 1889 type (design) and B 604/1 yard number, launched on May 7, 2008, is a unique vessel - one of the first such units worldwide, and the first one built at any European shipyard.

The vessel is unusual in being designed to carry a variety of gas cargoes: liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) or ethylene. The LNG will be transported at minus 163 degrees centigrade and the vessel is very environmentally-friendly because it will use the LNG as fuel, significantly decreasing emissions. When not engaged in regional distribution of LNG, for which it has been specifically designed, the new ship from Remontowa can be used to transport other gases such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and petrochemical gases, including ethylene. On completion the latest newbuilding from Remontowa goes on long term charter to Gasnor, carrying gas along the coast of Norway.

The ship will also play an important part in an environmentally-friendly system of LNG fuelled ferries to be operated in Norway. Remontowa SA has also won a tender to build some of these environmentally friendly gas fuelled double-ended ferries. The first ever LNG tanker for Poland and Remontowa is also the first for Anthony Veder, as the 7,500 cbm vessel also takes the Rotterdam-based shipping company, well known for operation of LPG and ethylene carriers, into the LNG sector.
On April 23, 2009, the delivery documents were signed regarding the advanced multipurpose gas carrier Coral Methane. The shipyard was represented by Mr Krzysztof Juchniewicz – director of commerce and production, Mr Jan Paszkowski – passenger, special and technical vessels manager, and Mr Artur Połeć – project manager. On behalf of the Owner documents were signed by Mr. Edgar J. van Oers – shipmanagement fleet director and Mr Adrie van den Berk – technical project manager. The ship departured the Gdansk – based shipyard on 29 th April 2009.
