Wilhelmsen to manage three LNG bunker vessels for Avenir LNG
Avenir LNG, a global energy supplier for small-scale LNG, has awarded the management of three LNG bunker vessels to Norway's Wilhelmsen Ship Management, the Norwegian company announced on September 13. The vessels are the Avenir Achievement, Avenir Ascension, and Avenir Aspiration.
The three vessels were previously managed by Hoegh LNG, one of three shareholders in Avenir LNG alongside Stolt Nielsen and Golar LNG.
Avenir LNG currently has a total fleet of five tankers in the water. The latest vessel to join the fleet was the 20,000 m3 Avenir Achievement in May last year. It also owns a small-scale LNG terminal in Sardinia, with assets/partnership now operating in China, Malaysia, the Mediterranean, Baltic Sea and the Caribbean.
Wilhelmsen Ship Management is a provider of technical and crew management services to the global shipping industry.
