Linde Units Will Support Viking Line Operations in Stockholm

Two Swedish units of Linde are collaborating on LNG fueling in Stockholm harbor – Linde’s AGA has contracted with Linde’s Gas Cryo AB (and Norway’s Fiskestrand Verft) for a bunkering vessel to deliver liquefied natural gas to Viking Line cruise ferries.

AGA’s LNG bunker vessel by Cryo AB (both units of Linde) features a no-pump design to reduce the number of moving parts.

Fiskestrand Verft is converting a retired car ferry (diesel-fueled) on behalf of Cryo, fitting it with a horizontal LNG tank of a reported 180 cubic meters capacity (upwards of 47,000 gallons), and efficient, pump-less LNG bunkering equipment – both supplied by Cryo.

The vessel is being converted according to IGC code specifications, as classified by DNV, says Carl-Lennart Axelsson of customer AGA.

It is to enter service in early 2013, says Jonas Bergstrom, business area manager for plants and special equipment with Cryo AB.

LNG-fueled Viking Grace is to enter service in January.

Viking Line recently launched the Viking Grace (F&F, August 7), a 702-foot (214-meter) ferry with 50DF LNG-diesel dual fuel engines from Wartsila, from the STX Turku shipyard in Finland. Viking Grace is to serve on the Viking Line’s Turku-Stockholm route beginning in January.
