On June 6, Gas and Heat spa (Pisa, Italy) has performed the hydrotest of the largest IMO Type C tank ever built in Europe for an LNG bunker vessel. The owner, the yard, the ship designer and the Class representative were in attendance. This tank, along with its "brother" will form the containment system of 1×7500 cbm LNG Carrier-bunkering vessel - two vessels will be built, ordered by Stolt- Nielsen Gas to Keppel Singapore. Gas and Heat designs and supplies the LNG containment, fuel and cargo systems.

Three years ago, Stolt- Nielsen Gas, Gas and Heat and a third partner established a SPV (named HIGAS) with the aim to build a 9000 cbm LNG receiving terminal in Sardinia (Italy) for inland distribution and bunkering. HIGAS will manage the complete value chain, including the LNG procurement, transportation to Sardinia terminal (with one of the two 7500 cbm), and the distribution to local users. Gas and Heat spa is the designated terminal EPC contractor.
