  16 September 2019Other Incidents

On September 16, 2019, in Pascagoula MS was named the LNG bunkering barge Q-LNG 4000. The vessel was constructed by VT Halter Marine Inc (shipbuilding company, subsidiary of ST Engineering North America Inc / fka VT Systems). Q-LNG 4000 is designed to provide ship-to-ship LNG bunkering (liquid natural gas transfers) to LNG-powered vessels.

In November 2017, the shipowner Q-LNG Transport LLC (New Orleans-based company) contracted VT Halter Marine for building the first US-manufactured ATB (articulated tug/barge) vessel. The combo ship consists of a barge (LNG capacity 4000 m3) and a tugboat. The US-made ATB was scheduled for delivery in 2020-Q1. It will be chartered (for 15 years) by Shell Trading Co (USA) to deliver LNG fuel to several Florida ports. Q-LNG 4000 will bunker Carnival's dual-fuel XL-Class ships, as well as two dual-fuel vehicle carriers (owned by Siem Car Carriers AS and chartered by Volkswagen for its Europe-North America shipping operations).
