Estonian company Infortar has taken delivery of a new LNG bunkering and supply vessel from Damen Yichang Shipyard in China.

Optimus has a length of 100 metres and two type C cargo tanks with a total capacity of 6,000 cubic metres.

The vessel was designed to meet the requirements of ICE class 1A certification and to achieve green ship notation. A dual fuel propulsion system is used for the management of the boil-off gas (BOG) in combination with a gas boiler system, and the interior of the vessel features high-quality accommodation for her crew.

Damen said the newbuild will be the first LNG bunkering vessel to operate in the Gulf of Finland and will serve both LNG-powered ships and shoreside customers. It will be operated under charter with Estonian energy company Elenger.
