“AGA’s and Viking Line’s investment means major environmental gains in comparison to traditional maritime fuel”, said Jan Bäckvall, Head of Europe North in Linde and responsible for AGA. “For Baltic shipping, this can be the primary solution in the future”.
The vessel’s consumption of LNG is estimated at 22,500 tons annually, or about 60 tons per day. AGA will supply the liquefied natural gas from its LNG terminal in Nynäshamn, which opened in 2011.
“The cooperation between AGA and Viking Line means that the guidelines for the management of a new fuel will be developed. This paves the way for a new infrastructure for Swedish shipping where LNG is of great future importance,” remarked Michael Backman, CEO of Viking Line Abp.
