Cardissa Supplies LNG to Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu
Aframax dual-fuel tankers Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu have both visited Rotterdam and received their LNG from Shell's LNG bunker vessel Cardissa.
On 13 April, a week and a half after the Eagle Brasilia, the Eagle Bintulu arrived in the port of Rotterdam during its maiden trip. The two hybrid oil tankers of the Malaysian shipping company AET can sail on both LNG (liquefied natural gas) and fuel oil. They are chartered by Shell for the Atlantic region.
The Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu are two Aframax tankers built by Samsung Heavy Industry Co Ltd's at the shipyard in Geoje, South Korea. The commissioning of the two ships was part of AET's Green Sustainability Agenda.
The Eagle Brasilia and Eagle Bintulu are bunkered by the Cardissa, Shell's LNG bunker ship with Rotterdam as its home port. The port of Rotterdam wants to become an important LNG hub and seeks to encourage shipping to switch from fuel oil to LNG. The Cardissa supplying LNG in the port fits in with this strategy.
