Germany: Kiel port enters milestone with first LNG bunkering operation

24 May 2023

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan and global cruise firm Carnival Corporation on Tuesday (23 May) said they have concluded their first LNG bunker operation in the Port of Kiel, Germany on 6 May.

The Optimus, a long-term chartered LNG bunker vessel by Titan with a capacity of 6000, and owned by Elengir, delivered LNG bunkers to cruise vessel AIDANova.

“The operation was successfully carried out and it ran smoothly as planned. This was the first LNG bunker delivery ever performed in the Port of Kiel,” Titan said in a social media post. 

“We are grateful for the constructive talks we have had with the Port Authorities of Kiel for the permit to allow Titan to execute LNG bunker deliveries in the Port of Kiel. This was the first LNG delivery of a series of bunkers that Titan will deliver to the AIDANova cruise vessel.”

“This operation would not have been possible without the close cooperation between all parties.”
