First LNG bunkering for MSC World Europa at Port of Marseille Fos
TotalEnergies Marine Fuels and the Cruise Division of MSC Group have successfully completed the first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) bunkering operation at the Port of Marseille Fos, on France’s Mediterranean coast, for MSC Cruises’ MSC World Europa.
The MSC Cruises vessel was refuelled via a ship-to-ship transfer of 2 500 m3 of LNG at the port on April 22nd, while guest operations continued as normal. The bunkering was conducted by the Gas Vitality, a TotalEnergies Marine Fuels’ chartered LNG bunker barge. The successful execution of these simultaneous operations (SIMOPs) underscores TotalEnergies’ Marine Fuels ability to safely deliver commercial LNG bunkering operations.
