The world’s largest LNG bunker supply vessel (BSV) Kairos successfully conducted the first ship-to-ship bunkering operation in German waters today, when the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Scheldt River received the low emission fuel.

The vessel, which was christened in Hamburg on February 2019, is owned by Babcock Schulte Energy and is operated on behalf of the German LNG supplier Nauticor.

In total, the TSHD Scheldt River received 300 cbm of LNG at the Elbehafen Brunsbüttel, part of Brunsbüttel Ports GmbH.

Scheldt River is owned and operated by the DEME Group and is currently conducting maintenance dredging works on the Lower Elbe.

In the past, the vessel has received LNG from Nauticor through truck-to-ship bunkering operations.

In the beginning of October 2019, the DEME Group and Nauticor signed a framework agreement for the supply of LNG with the BSV Kairos to DEME’s fleet of newbuild vessels with LNG propulsion.

According to Nauticor, the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation in a German port marks the start for an extended cooperation.
