In a Singapore – Nordic tie-up Pavilion Energy and Gasum are to partner in developing a global LNG bunkering supply network.
The two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate on developing a LNG bunker supply network for their customers in Singapore and Northern Europe, including Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp.
The move combines some of the largest traditional bunkering ports into a single network for LNG fuel supply to ships. Gasum has established operations in the Nordic region operating five LNG bunker vessels as well as LNG terminals. Pavilion holds one of two existing LNG bunkering licenses in Singapore and carries out truck to ship bunkering operations.
“Pavilion Energy is thrilled to partner with Gasum and provide customers with a wide supply LNG bunker network for ocean-going vessels sailing between the Far East and Northern Europe,” said Frédéric H. Barnaud, group ceo of Pavilion Energy.
“We will complement this alliance with additional LNG bunkering partnerships in the Mediterranean, North Asia and the Americas. Our network will combine global commercial offerings with regional operational expertise and bring further momentum to the emergence of a thriving LNG bunkering industry.”
“This partnership underlines our aim to build a world-wide partner network. For our customers this mean that we will support them with LNG wherever they are. We are very happy for having Pavilion Energy as a partner in the Far East supporting our shipping customers,” said Johanna Lamminen, ceo of Gasum.
