CGR Arctic Marine has ordered an LNG bunkering vessel for possible deployment in southeast Asia and South America, according to company officials.

CGR has entered into an agreement with China's Wuzhou Shipbuilding and Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute (SDARI) to build the 6,000-cbm ship. They announced the partnership Wednesday at the Marintec Shanghai conference.

The ship will partially run off battery power and feature an IMO type C bunker-holding tank with spray foam insulation.
