Rotterdam: SIMOPS LNG bunker operations now available at Vopak Europoort Terminal

12 Aug 2020

Independent tank storage company Royal Vopak on Tuesday (11 August) said vessels calling at Vopak’s Europoort terminal in Rotterdam can now receive liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker fuel from bunker barges simultaneously while loading or discharging.

This eliminates the shifting time and reduces expenses for LNG-powered vessels for their bunkering, it said.

The port of Rotterdam has been an avid supporter of simultaneous operations (SIMOPS) ship-to-ship LNG bunkering from as early as 2018, as long as it is safe and controlled.
