In a momentous milestone, Fratelli Cosulich’s inaugural LNG bunker vessel, the Alice Cosulich, set sail on its maiden voyage from Qidong, China on Friday, October 27th, 2023.
The Chinese shipyard CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering in Nantong has delivered the Alice Cosulich, the first LNG bunker vessel of the Fratelli Cosulich group, which celebrated the event with an official ceremony.
The LNG bunker vessel, an impressive 113 meters in length with a carrying capacity of 8,200 cubic meters of LNG, the vessel has been chartered to Titan Clean Fuels for a multi-year period, and its journey is poised to leave a significant impact on the LNG bunker fuel market.
The Alice Cosulich’s voyage will take her to Europe, where she will play a pivotal role in meeting the surging demand for LNG as a cleaner and more sustainable bunker fuel. As the maritime industry continues to prioritize eco-friendly solutions, this journey represents a substantial step towards reducing emissions and enhancing sustainability in shipping.
