Liquefied natural gas (LNG) solution provider Cryostar and KC LNG on Friday (17 January) announced they have been awarded a contract for building a LNG ship bunkering and truck fuelling facility at the port of Antwerp.
The project promoters of the facility are Fluxys, G&V, Titan LNG and Rolande.
Cryostar and KC LNG are set to commission the facility in the first quarter of 2020.
The facility will allow Fluxys, G&V, Titan LNG and Rolande to substantially widen the LNG fuelling options at quay 526/528 in the port of Antwerp, where currently only truck-to-ship bunkering is offered.
After commissioning, LNG-powered inland waterway ships will be able to dock at quay 526/528 for bunkering from a fixed storage unit while LNG powered trucks will be able to refuel at the facility as well.
KC LNG believes that this new project in Antwerp is only a sign of more things to come.
“We are proud to be part of delivering this solution with some of the leading LNG players in Europe. We think that this project is yet another testament to the rapid development of the LNG market,” said LNG Makeen Energy Head of Group Frej Olsen.
“Easily accessible and affordable LNG is in high demand, and we want to be at the forefront with more solutions that accommodate this demand.”
Furthermore, in mid-2020 the FlexFueler002 LNG bunkering barge will become operational in the greater Antwerp port area enabling safe and efficient Ship-to-Ship LNG bunkering on a larger scale.
