New LNG bunkering project launches at Posidonia

A new LNG bunkering project called probunkers was launched at Posidonia yesterday.

The newly-formed Athens-headquartered company will design, build and operate a fleet of modern, eco-friendly LNG bunkering vessels. The project involves: planning, financing, implementation, operations and sales. It will have a three-tier role as physical supplier, LNG trader/seller and barge owner and operator. The three-fold business model includes investment, trading and finance elements while the multi-layer model involves operations, LNG buying and selling, logistics and marketing.

Greek shipowners at this edition of Posidonia have come out in ever greater support for LNG as an alternative fuel for shipping.
