Specifically, the Norwegian company Cryo Shipping, Ignitis and Baltkonta cooperated with Klaipedos Nafta on the bunkering project.

It is reported that the 45 cubic metres of LNG were loaded to the fuel tank of Greenland cement tanker. The bunkering operation was performed by Cryo Shipping, while the LNG was purchased from Ignitis and loaded into the ISO container at Klaipedos Nafta’s LNG reloading station and transported to the Malkos Bay terminal by Baltkonta.

Nicholai Olsen, director of Cryo Shipping, stated that Klaipeda was chosen for cement tanker bunkering because of the KN LNG reloading station infrastructure in this port.

Darius Šilenskis, CEO of KN commented that

Until these are in place Cryo Shipping AS had to go a long way in obtaining permission for the first LNG bunkering operation in the port of Klaipėda and to negotiate a series of documents, defining a safe operation, and securing the permission of the Harbor Master’s Office in this particular case at Klaipėda Port.
