Eagle LNG has taken delivery of its first LNG carrier, Coral Favia, which will offer LNG supply and bunker services for the Caribbean basin.

The 10,000 cubic metre (cbm) LNG supply vessel, which was delivered from Anthony Veder last week, is the first of a planned fleet from Eagle LNG offering LNG supply and bunker services in the region.

The arrival of the LNG supply vessel, said Texas-headquartered Eagle LNG, ‘marks the beginning of a partnership between two long-time pioneers in the small-scale LNG bunkering and export industry.’

‘Eagle LNG has the highest regard for Anthony Veder’s success in bringing LNG as an economic and sustainable marine fuel around the globe. Since 2014, our interests in LNG transportation and bunkering have aligned,’ said Simon Duncan, Vice President Marine Operations, Eagle LNG. ‘We are proud of this opportunity to expand Eagle LNG’s logistics and supply-chain with a likeminded partner.’

Anthony Veder’s CEO, Jan Valkier, added: ‘Anthony Veder has watched Eagle LNG’s accomplishments with great interest over the past few years and looks forward to bringing our innovations and LNG shipping knowledge for further growth in the Caribbean and other markets. Both our companies are committed to safe operations; we are particularly proud that Coral Favia has found its home port with Eagle LNG.’

Sean Lalani, President, Eagle LNG, commented: ‘After nearly a decade of pioneering small-scale LNG solutions including pipe-to-ship LNG bunkering, Eagle LNG is excited for this next logical step in expanding its LNG supply solutions portfolio. Having multiple new projects coming on-stream in the next several months, Eagle LNG is poised for exponential growth and the addition of this new LNG supply and bunkering capability enhances Eagle LNG’s core value proposition of an assured, secure supply chain bringing cost savings and energy transition solutions to our customers.’

As previously reported, last year, Eagle LNG announced a partnership with Royal Caribbean to provide bunkering for the cruise company’s LNG-fuelled vessels, including the Icon of the Seas, RCL’s first Icon Class vessel.
