Ecobunker Shipping’s new bunker tanker, named Ecobunker Tokyo Bay, held its naming and launch ceremony at Fukuoka Shipbuilding on Tuesday. The bunker tanker will operate in Tokyo Bay.
“She is a multi-bunkering vessel capable of both ship-to-ship LNG and VLSFO bunkering,” Ecobunker Shipping stated.
The 4,100 tonnes Ecobunker Tokyo Bay has a LNG tank capacity of 2,500 cu m and a VLSFO tank capacity of 1,500 cu m.
“We will further work on outfitting the vessel including installation of equipment and tanks. Ecobunker Shipping will continue to promote eco-friendly bunker fuel, also aiming to contribute in developing Tokyo Bay as one of the world’s leading LNG bunkering hubs,” it said.
