Marine solution company, Høglund, has been awarded a contract by Bergen Tankers to deliver a cargo handling system for the first LNG bunkering vessel to operate in Norway.

Operating as part of a long-term charter with Shell Gasnor, the BergenLNG will be retrofitted from an existing fuel oil bunkering vessel. Previously known as Oslo Tank, Bergen LNG will operate in Bergen harbour from the fourth quarter of 2020 and will serve future LNG cruise ships from Hurtigruten and Havila Coastal Route.

“Høglund has worked on several of the world’s current LNG bunkering vessels, and each project has demonstrated how specialist expertise is needed to integrate and control the systems of these vessels safely and reliably,” said Peter Morsbach, director of projects at Høglund Gas Solutions.

“At Høglund, we support the owner by drawing upon our dedicated expertise and vast experience to ensure an in-time delivery, installation of our solutions and overall integration of loose ends. As a result, we can help owners to facilitate retrofits that are both timely and engineered for long-term reliability,” he added.

Høglund will supply both hardware and automation including an IMO Type C cargo tank, cargo pumps, bunker manifolds, custody transfer system, and a ship-to-ship transfer system. Høglund will also provide cargo control and emergency shutdown systems, and ship-to-shore/ship-to-ship link systems.

Høglund also supplies the fuel gas supply systems for the Hurtigruten vessels that will operate out of Bergen. The vessels will be compatible for use with sustainably sourced bio-LNG, allowing for significant CO2 savings.
