The shuttle tanker will be chartered to ENI Trade & Biofuels S.p.A, a subsidiary of the Italian oil, gas, and energy major Ente Nazionale Idrocarburi S.p.A (ENI), and will be engaged in oil transportation in the North Sea and the Barents Sea.

The vessel will be KNOT’s first dual-fuel shuttle tanker that can use not only heavy fuel oil (HFO) but also LNG. LNG is seen as more environmentally friendly than conventional HFO.

The vessel is also equipped with a volatile organic compounds (VOC) recovery system and an energy storage system to further reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions.
