Swedish Shipping Company Takes on Liquefied Biogas

Submitted by on July 3, 2018 – 10:23 amNo Comment

(Bioenergy News)  Skangas, a subsidiary of Gasum, has supplied liquefied biogas (LBG) to Furetank, a major Swedish shipping company.

The LBG was delivered to Furetank’s tanker ship, Fure Vinga, from Gasum’s biogas facility in Lidköping. The fuelling was carried out at the port of Gothenburg with the fuel transferred directly from tanker truck to ship.

Fure Vinga is one of two vessels in Furetank’s fleet powered by liquefied gas. The shipping company is currently building five more vessels which can be fuelled by LBG if and when the fuel is available. The vessels will operate in the seas of Northern Europe and have access to Skangas’ LNG supply network in the region.

Lars Höglund, CEO of Furetank, said in a statement that using liquefied biogas was part of the company’s drive towards improving its sustainability and environmental friendliness. He described LBG as ‘a clear option’ for the shipping firm.

“To be increasingly greener with the renewable biogas is possible because we use the same infrastructure that we’ve built throughout northern Europe. This mean that LNG and LBG will continue to walk hand in hand as the availability of LBG on the market is on the rise.”  READ MORE
