Greece’s state-owned transmission system operator, DEPA, will build an LNG bunkering vessel to serve Piraeus and other Greek ports, the company said on Tuesday.
The vessel will be co-funded by the EU and have a capacity of 3,000 cubic metres.
It will be the first LNG bunkering vessel operating in Greek waters and the eastern Mediterranean.
The vessel forms part of DEPA’s participation in the European Commission’s BlueHUBS scheme, which aims to promote LNG as a marine fuel in Greece and Cyprus.
