Coralus is part of the JIP Flexi, which was participating in the establishment of an LNG infrastructure via Pilot LNG by building a vessel with a fast, efficient and safe bunkering system for LNG bunkering in- and offshore, as well as developing efficient procedures for LNG bunkering. The Flexi vessel (Coralius) is a bunker tanker that will be designed and built to support the distribution of LNG for gas fuelled ships.
A bunker vessel is an essential part of the infrastructure chain necessary to provide LNG to vessels operating in the Baltic Sea.
Development of a fast, efficient and safe bunkering system and procedures for LNG bunkering inshore and offshore is also part of the activity.
