New record for LNG bunkering speed set at Rotterdam

23 Feb 2018

A new record has reportedly been set for the bunkering speed of liquefied natural gas (LNG) at the port of Rotterdam, says LNG bunker supplier Nauticor, formerly known as Bomn Linde LNG.

The company conducted its first LNG bunkering operation at Rotterdam on 20 February for the boxship Wes Amelie and used six LNG trucks to deliver a total of 120 metric tonnes (mt) of fuel.

The vessel received LNG fuel at a rate of 40 mt per hour from two LNG trucks at the same time.

“We are happy to have been chosen to continue supporting this pioneering project and are looking forward to enhancing our cooperation in the future,” said Sonja NeBhover, Director of the LNG Portfolio of Nauticor.

“We are continuously working on optimising the LNG supply for ships and feel well-prepared for more bunker operations at this location.

"Another important milestone for the development of the LNG supply infrastructure in North & Baltic Seas will be our new LNG bunker vessel, which will be put into operation before the end of this year.”

Manifold Times earlier reported Nauticor carrying out the largest bunkering operation involving LNG as a marine fuel at the Elbehafen harbour in Brunsbuttel, Germany.
