Wärtsilä said it booked an order in June to supply the cargo handling system and cargo tanks for a new 3,000 cubic meter capacity liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker barge currently under construction.

 
The vessel, which is being built in Romania and will be outfitted in the Netherlands, will be owned by LNG Shipping, a consortium between Belgium based Victrol and CFT Corporation based in France. When delivered, it will be chartered by Shell Western LNG B.V., operating out of Rotterdam to provide the company with additional flexibility to bunker LNG fuelled ships, including vessels operating on Europe's inland waterways.
 
The full scope of Wärtsilä solutions comprises the cargo handling system, the cargo tanks, and installation of the cargo arrangement onboard the vessel.
