German shipyard Meyer Werft announced today the delivery of the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tanker CORAL ENERGY to Rotterdam-based shipowner Anthony Veder. It is the first ship of a new gas tanker type which is equipped with an eco-friendly Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel main engine, and a pair of Wärtsilä 20DF dual-fuel auxiliary engines. The DF engines will be run mostly on environmentally sound, liquefied natural gas (LNG), but have the capability of being switched to diesel fuel if and when required. This will be the first newbuild vessel with a dual-fuel engine mechanically driving the propeller.
The vessel will mainly operate in protected Emissions Control Area (ECA) zones like the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
Anthony Veder is a specialist in the seagoing transportation of liquefied gas products with a fleet of over 25 ships.
