The ship, Ramanda, from the Gothia Tanker Alliance series of vessels based in Sweden, has become the first fully LNG powered ship to unload at the Oikos jetties.

Oikos said the ship offers “significant environmental benefits and lower costs, with LNG use significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions, sulphur dioxide output by close to 100 percent and nitrogen oxide particulates by 85 percent.”

Tony Woodward, general manager of Oikos Storage Ltd, said: “It is imperative that the whole fuel supply chain plays its part in tackling climate change.

“By hosting multi-fuel greener vessels and developing the port and storage infrastructure for the next generation of fuels, we are proud to be playing our small part in the decarbonisation of the fuel sector and the country’s critical national infrastructure.”
