Originally the Bit Viking was delivered to Tarbit Shipping as a product tanker sailing on HFO/MGO. The Bit Viking was the first product tanker retrofitted with dual-fuel engines in order to pay lower NOx emission taxes in Norway. With support from the NOx fund, the Bit Viking was one of the first vessels converted to switch to LNG and was completed in 2011. The capacity (2x500m3) of the storage tanks allow the vessel to sail for up to 12 days (at 80% of its load), and the design allows the vessel to switch to MGO when deemed necessary.

2013, Ocean Shipping Consultants (Royal Haskoning), LNG as a bunker fuel: future demand prospects & port design options
The LNG-fuelled fleet in operation in 2016 will be double the size of the current fleet. The order book shows a shift towards larger ship types like tankers, container ships, general cargo ships and RoRo ships. In Europe and North America, especially, significant growth is expected.
