PASCALOUGA, MISSISSIPPI – A naming ceremony was conducted at VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula, Mississippi, for Q-LNG 4000, the first LNG bunker articulated tug-barge vessel built in the United States.

The 324-foot-long vessel will refuel Carnival Cruise Line’s cruise ship Mardi Gras when the first LNG-powered cruise ship homeported in North America arrives at Port Canaveral in October 2020.

When operating at the Port, Q-LNG 4000 will be filled with 4,000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas produced at the Elba Island LNG terminal in Savannah, Georgia.

The tug and barge will be launched in October and should arrive at the Port in the first quarter of 2020.
