A ship-to-ship (STS) bunkering operation involving liquefied natural gas (LNG) is expected to be conducted at the port of Rotterdam in June, reports Reuters.
The pioneering event will be a first at the port and an important highlight as the operation will mean more availability of LNG as a marine fuel, says Cess Boon, Senior Adviser Harbourmaster Policy Department, Port of Rotterdam.
“A lot of milestones will follow,” Boon told Reuters in an email on Tuesday.
The first parties to immediately benefit from the development at Rotterdam will be short-haul vessels, which to date are only able to receive LNG bunker fuel through truck-to-ship transfers at berth.
This will be followed by LNG-powered cruise ships, which are scheduled to undergo STS bunkering of LNG fuel in November, and larger LNG-fuelled international vessels by the end of 2019.
The Port of Rotterdam Authority on 3 April organised an information session Fuelling the Future: LNG for over 50 representatives from several shipping companies and terminals to inform the group about the benefits of LNG and possibilities of LNG bunkering in the Port of Rotterdam.
