Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) is owned by the Scottish Government, and the two new LNG bunkering facilities will strengthen the sustainable profile of the ports. The facilities will be located at the Port of Uig on the Isle of Skye and the Port of Ardrossan on the Firth of Clyde.
The installations will comprise fully automated and remotely monitored facilities. They will have a 150 m3 LNG tank with the capability of delivering a bunkering flow of up to 100 m3/hour – and thereby meet the extensive demands of the individual ferry timetables.
Complete and customised bunkering solutions
The new LNG facilities will be managed by Caledonian MacBrayne Ltd (CalMac) on behalf of CMAL. And KC LNG will design, manufacture and deliver the facilities so they fit with the specific locations and needs. Andy Crossan, Projects Director at Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd, explains what it means:
"We really appreciate how KC LNG has listened to our needs and ideas – and how they’ve incorporated them into a workable solution. For us, it was very important to get a complete solution that includes all the elements of design, delivery and service, and KC LNG has put together a customised package that will deliver just that."
