The following article published by Manifold Times on 27 June was sourced from China’s domestic market through a local correspondent. An online translation service was used in the production of the current editorial piece:

The liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual-fuel commercial Ro-Ro ship Minsheng successfully completed its maiden voyage on 21 June, making it the first of its kind on the Yangtze River, reported China Water Transport News on Friday (24 June). 

The retrofitted Minsheng left the Ro-Ro terminal of Orchard port, the largest inland river hub port in China, after it was fully loaded with commercial vehicles.

The ship, owned by Minsheng Group, has a total length of 110 metres, a gross tonnage of 8,932 tonnes, and a full-load draft of 3.12 metres.

Most ships on the Yangtze River presently use diesel fuel for power leading to ship exhaust gas such as nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, carbon oxides and particulate matter becoming a source of air pollution. 

With widespread attention for the use of LNG as a clean energy source, China has issued a series of specifications and regulations on the design, construction, installation, and inspection of LNG fuel-powered ships.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
