The liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering pontoon developed by Titan LNG will be stationed on a long-term basis at the Port of Amsterdam.
The FlexFueler001 is the first of its kind in Europe and provides easy, affordable and safe LNG bunkering services, says the port while adding the agreement underpins its ambition to facilitate the development of the LNG bunkering market in Amsterdam.
“We believe in LNG as a shipping fuel and Titan LNG’s solution fits very well with our strategic focus on becoming a sustainable port and our transition to renewable energy,” says Koen Overtoom, CEO Port of Amsterdam.
“We strive to connect the port seamlessly to the fast growing metropolitan area, and lowering pollution is a top priority! We are looking forward to the launch of the FlexFueler001 at the end of this year.”
The port has selected the centrally located “America Harbour” as home of the FlexFueler001 LNG bunkering pontoon, which is able to receive LNG cargo from both trucks and LNG transport vessels.
A push boat will manoeuvre the FlexFueler001 to its destination for bunkering operations.
“We are very pleased with the support of Port of Amsterdam,” says Niels den Nijs, CEO of Titan LNG.
“Their trust has enabled us to realise a long-term supply solution for vessels that run on LNG.
“LNG as a marine fuel has a great future and provides one of the building blocks of a more sustainable shipping industry.”
