On February 8, 2019, what is touted as the world’s largest LNG bunker supply vessel Kairos was christened in the port of Hamburg

With a tank capacity of 7,500 m³, Kairos is the world’s largest LNG bunker supply vessel. The ice class vessel has several other unique features, including the ballast-free design and installation of a CNG tank to store vapor return gas from customer vessels. The construction of the vessel started in 2016 and in February 2018, steel cutting took place at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) in Ulsan, South Korea, from where the vessel was delivered in October 2018.
