LARGEST LNG BUNKER SHIP LAUNCHED BY AVENIR

Saturday, January 30, 2021 

UK company Avenir LNG has launched the 'Avenir Allegiance', said to be the largest dual-purpose, LNG supply and bunkering vessel, at the CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering's Zhoushan Changhong International Shipyard.

Due for delivery from CIMC SOE in the third quarter of this year, she will be the first 20,000m3 vessel to join the Avenir LNG fleet and the largest LNG bunkering vessel. The vessel will sail under the Cayman Islands flag and is the fourth of six newbuilds ordered by Avenir LNG. Avenir’s first newbuild delivery, Avenir Advantage, was handed over in October 2020 and will be followed by the Avenir Accolade, Aspiration, Allegiance, Ascension and Achievement in 2021. 

Peter Mackey, CEO Avenir LNG, said: “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. She 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.”

Avenir LNG supplies small-scale LNG to off-grid industry, power generation and transport fuel sectors as well as providing infrastructure to support the development of LNG as a marine fuel.
