Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has successfully delivered its second newbuild LNG carrier, the 'Avenir Accolade', to its owner, a subsidiary of Avenir LNG.

The LNG tanker can also function as an LNG bunkering vessel (LBV), making it the third LBV that Keppel has delivered. The 7,500m3 dual-fuel Avenir Accolade is similar to the first vessel delivered to Avenir LNG, and was built at Keppel Nantong Shipyard in China. Keppel O&M’s technology arm, Offshore Technology Development (OTD), installed and commissioned the vessel’s Ballast Water Treatment System.

Avenir Accolade is designed to support small-scale LNG distribution and bunkering. It will be chartered to LNG Power Limited, a subsidiary of Hygo Energy Transition, and used to deliver LNG to various ports across Brazil.

Keppel O&M has developed a suite of solutions in both the demand and supply of LNG as fuel. It previously delivered the Avenir Advantage, South East Asia’s first LBV, as well as the FueLNG Bellina, Singapore’s first LBV, and is currently building dual-fuel vessels such as containerships, dredgers and LBVs. Keppel O&M is promoting LNG as a marine fuel through FueLNG, its joint venture with Shell Eastern Petroleum, which provides safe LNG bunkering solutions in Singapore.
