Europe’s first inland-waterway liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker vessel London LNG on Thursday (1 October) conducted the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation to a cruise vessel in the Port of Rotterdam.
The operation is, “a new milestone for LNG Shipping and LNG London, being operational for more than a year now and having performed more than 200 bunkers successfully,” said the company.
“To help meet the challenges of the 21st century and environmental targets, LNG offers a 21% reduction in CO2, a 90% reduction in NOx and a 100% reduction in SO2 and fine particle emissions compared to traditional fuel oils.”
The LNG London (which is owned by LNG Shipping – a cooperation between Victrol and Sogestran) is on long-term charter to Shell. It will primarily be used by Shell for LNG bunkering in the ports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp.
