Bunker supplier Peninsula and Scale Gas — a subsidiary of Spanish energy company Enagas — have signed a contract to build and jointly own an LNG bunkering vessel (LNGBV) that will serve the Strait of Gibraltar.

The 12,500-cbm ship will be built at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea. After its delivery in June 2023, it will be chartered exclusively to Peninsula for an initial seven-year period.
