Peninsula, the Spanish based independent global supplier of marine energy, has supplied on November 4, Royal Caribbean group’s cruise vessel “Silver Nova” with liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Gibraltar.

The supply operation in Gibraltar was carried out by the 12,500m3 LNG supply vessel “Levante LNG” which has arrived at her Mediterranean home at the end of September, and is now fully operational for Peninsula’s LNG supply in the Strait of Gibraltar, and Western Mediterranean ports.

Peninsula announced on October 10 that it was granted an LNG bunkering operator license by the government of Gibraltar, and the Gibraltar port authority.

 “We are all very proud of hitting this milestone. This is our first LNG supply in Gibraltar keeping us ahead of the decarbonisation curve and marking our move into the physical space through our joint owned, and operated vessel. My thanks also go to Royal Caribbean Group for their commitment to Peninsula in further advancing a lower carbon future together,” said John A. Bassadone, chief executive of Peninsula.

“Our LNG bunkering services in the West Med are now operational. Our latest asset is a state-of-the-art, dedicated LNG supply vessel that is providing lower carbon alternatives to the global LNG powered fleet. I want to thank Royal Caribbean Group for trusting in us to supply their Silver Nova and I have no doubt this is only the beginning of our decarbonisation journey together,” noted Nacho de Miguel, Peninsula’s head of alternative fuels & sustainability.
