AGA Gas to provide LNG for new Viking Line ferry; 60 tonnes per day

AGA Gas AB, a member of the Linde Group, and Viking Line Abp have signed an agreement on delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Viking Line’s new LNG-fueled ferry.

Viking Line’s newbuild “NB 1376”, recently named the M/S Viking Grace, will provide service on the Stockholm (Sweden) – Åland Islands (Finland) – Turku (Finland) route beginning in January 2013. The vessel, currently under construction at the STX Europe shipyard in Turku, will be Viking Line’s largest passenger ferry and will be powered by LNG. (Earlier post.)

The liquefied gas will be stored in specially built tanks at the rear of the vessel and will have a temperature of about -150 °C when it is bunkered and stored on board.

The vessel has a capacity of 2,800 passengers, as well as large space for vehicles.

The vessel’s consumption of LNG is estimated at 22,500 tonnes annually, or about 60 tonnes per day. AGA will supply the liquefied natural gas from AGA’s LNG terminal in Nynäshamn, which opened in 2011. Planning, projecting and permission for bunkering (refueling) of the vessel at Stadsgården in Stockholm is in progress.
