World’s largest LNG bunkering vessel launched in China

 

London – The world’s largest dual-purpose, LNG supply and bunkering vessel Avenir Allegiance was launched at Zhoushan Changhong International Shipyard Co. Ltd., China, on 27 January. Due for delivery from CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering Co. (CIMC SOE) in the third quarter of 2021, this will be the first 20,000cbm vessel to join the fleet of UK-based Avenir LNG Limited and become the world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel.

The Avenir Allegiance will be Cayman Island flagged and the 4th of 6 newbuilds delivered to Avenir LNG. Avenir’s first newbuild delivery (the Avenir Advantage) took place in October 2020 and will be followed by the Avenir AccoladeAspirationAllegianceAscensionand Achievement this year.  

Peter Mackey, CEO Avenir LNG Limited, commented: “We are delighted to see the latest, and largest, vessel in the Avenir LNG fleet being successfully launched by our partners CIMC SOE. We look forward to taking delivery of the Avenir Allegiance later this year. As the largest LNG bunkering vessel in the world, the Avenir Allegiance is a clear demonstration of our commitment to developing new LNG supply chains globally. It will play a critical role in helping the shipping industry to transition to LNG as a more environmentally sustainable fuel. The Allegiance will operate as both an LNG bunkering vessel and an LNG supply vessel. This highly flexible vessel underscores our strategy of simultaneously unlocking multiple new LNG markets with multi-functional assets. We can deliver LNG to a broad range of customers from a single vessel, improving efficiency in the LNG supply chain and ultimately reducing costs to our end-customers.”
