The delivery of the first of these methanol-ready vessels will be in the first half of 2026.

The newbuild vessels are designed to carry a range of cargoes, including fuel oil, biofuels, and methanol in their cargo tanks, enhancing their utility and market potential.

This investment marks another milestone in the Company’s commitment to a sustainable and efficient maritime industry and enhanced fleet operational excellence.

Our commitment to environmental responsibility and technological innovation is fueled by our team’s expertise and a fleet ready to support the transition to sustainable marine energy.

Our twin small-scale LNG bunker vessels, Alice Cosulich and Paolina Cosulich, are now fully operational, meeting the growing demand from LNG-fueled vessels. In addition, we are profoundly diversifying our fleet because we believe in a mult-ifuel future. Vessels like Marta Cosulich, our first IMO2 chemical bunker vessel capable of delivering biofuel and methanol, and the anticipated 2025 delivery of our second IMO2 chemical bunker vessel, and the first methanol fueled, demonstrate our Group’s commitment to this vision.

The official website shows that Fratelli Cosulich Group was founded in 1857, has 167 years of development history, including 15 business units, covering the entire value chain of shipping and logistics, with a diversified fleet and a global staff of 2,500 people.
