January 24, 2024 [LNG Prime]- A unit of French energy giant TotalEnergies has recently completed the 100th LNG bunkering operation with its chartered vessel, Gas Vitality, in Marseille.


The 135 meters long 18,600-cbm LNG bunkering vessel, owned by Japan’s MOL, completed the milestone operation on January 1, 2024 in the Port of Marseille-Fos, according to V.Group, which manages the vessel via its unit V.Ships France.

The bunkering involved a transfer of 8,000 cbm of LNG to MSC’s containership with a capacity of 15,000 TEU, MSC Freya, it said.

Concurrently, the 2023-built MSC Freya performed cargo handling operations.

VesselsValue data shows that EPS is the owner of MSC Freya while MSC charters the ship.


First LNG bunkering vessel to be based in France

Chinese shipbuilder Hudong-Zhonghua has held a naming ceremony for Gas Vitaly in October 2021 and the vessel arrived in France in December the same year.

It is the first LNG bunkering vessel to be based in France.

Gas Vitality has similar specifications as its sister ship, Gas Agility, which works for TotalEnergies from the Dutch port of Rotterdam.

Since November 2020, TotalEnergies Marine Fuels has completed more than 200 LNG bunkering operations with the two vessels, it said in October last year.
