Avenir LNG Limited (Avenir) has awarded the management of three LNG bunker vessels to Wilhelmsen Ship Management (Wilhelmsen).
n particular, the vessels awarded are Avenir Achievement, Avenir Ascension and Avenir Aspiration.
We are thrilled to embark on this journey with our new client, Avenir, and we look forward to managing these state-of-the-art LNG bunker tankers, which hold a pivotal role in the industry’s ongoing energy transition.
…said Carl Schou, CEO and President of Wilhelmsen Ship Management.
Avenir is a new customer to Wilhelmsen. The three vessels were previously managed by Hoegh LNG, one of three blue-chip shareholders in Avenir LNG alongside Stolt Nielsen Ltd and Golar LNG.
Hoegh LNG have contributed enormously to the success of Avenir LNG since the company was established in 2018, paving a solid foundation for the future. We applaud all their hard work and Hoegh LNG will continue to be key part of our growth trajectory as a key shareholder.
…said Avenir LNG CEO Peter Mackey.
As explained, the Oslo-stock listed company currently has a total fleet of 5 tankers in the water. The latest vessel to join the fleet was the 20,000-cbm Avenir Achievement in May last year.
