Titan Transforms Newly Acquired Ships into LNG Bunkering Vessels
Posted 10/08/2023 13:16
Dutch bunker supplier Titan has successfully completed the conversion of its recently acquired vessels, Titan Unikum and Titan Vision, into cutting-edge LNG bunkering vessels.
Having procured the two ships from Canadian gas transportation firm Seapeak in early 2023, Titan embarked on retrofitting the vessels for bunkering operations.
The conversion of Titan Unikum was carried out at the Metalships & Docks S.A.U. shipyard in Spain. The vessel underwent a comprehensive transformation, including the integration of crucial bunkering equipment such as advanced cargo transfer systems, ERS (Emergency Release Systems), ESL (Emergency Shutdown Link) systems, and reinforced mooring capabilities.
Concurrently, Titan Vision was transformed into an LNG bunkering vessel at the PaxOcean shipyard in Indonesia.
"We are delighted to announce the successful completion of the conversion of our vessels, Titan Unikum and Titan Vision, into state-of-the-art LNG Bunker Vessels (LNGBVs)," Titan proudly stated.
The retrofitting has equipped the vessels with a cargo capacity of 12,000 cubic meters each. Measuring 152 meters in length and 19.8 meters in width, the ships are now primed to transport and provide bunkering services for LNG, liquefied biomethane (LBM), and, in the future, hydrogen-derived e-methane (e-LNG).
This accomplishment underscores Titan's collaborative spirit and commitment to innovation. The successful conversion of these vessels underscores the company's dedication to advancing the maritime industry.
Titan emphasized that this achievement reflects their unwavering dedication to "illuminate the pathway that LNG now and Bio & E LNG can provide for our customers."
With their retrofitting complete, both Titan Unikum and Titan Vision are poised to operate in the Mediterranean and Northwestern Europe regions. This strategic positioning will enable them to meet the growing demand for LNG and LBM services in these areas.
