Sagunto regasification terminal in Spain gets upgraded to offer LNG bunkering services

Spanish energy company Enagás on Tuesday (12 December) said the Sagunto regasification terminal near Valencia, Spain has been successfully adapted to offer liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering services.

The initiative was part of the ‘LNGHIVE2: Infrastructure and Logistics Solutions’ project which is coordinated by Enagás and promoted by Saggas and the Valenciaport Foundation.

Launched in October 2018, the project advances the European Union’s decarbonisation objectives in the field of sustainable mobility. 20% of the total investment has been financed with European funds from the European transport aid programme Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).

‘LNGHIVE2: Infrastructure and Logistics Solutions’ is part of the strategy to deploy LNG supply points in ports, and develop the associated market promoted by the Ministry of Transport and Sustainable Mobility through Puertos del Estado (the Spanish Ports Authority).

During the presentation of the results of this initiative, held today at the Sagunto regasification terminal, CEO of Saggas, Santiago Álvarez, said that “participation in this European initiative has allowed us to expand the services offered at our facilities. 

“The adaptation of our quay has made it possible for our facilities to load LNG in small scale vessels, with a capacity of less than 6,500 m3 , which will contribute to boosting bunkering activity in our area".

Enagás’ Gas Assets General Manager, Claudio Rodríguez, said: “In a context of special complexity and demands in terms of decarbonisation for ports and their activity, both linked to intermodality and the industrial environment, this project has become an acceleration tool based on an example of public-private partnership, which lays the foundations for the introduction of renewable gases in accordance with the new regulation on Alternative Fuels Infrastructures in Mobility (AFIR)”.

Peninsula completes LNG bunkering op of “Thor Highway” in Gibraltar

Marine fuel supplier Peninsula on Wednesday (17 July) announced the successful LNG bunkering of the car carrier Thor Highway by Peninsula’s LNG bunker vessel Levante LNG

The supply operation was carried out for its customer “K” LINE in Gibraltar.

The Thor Highway, operated by “K” LINE, is a newly built LNG dual-fuelled car carrier chartered by the company and was delivered this year. 

The vessel is part of “K” LINE’s continued commitment to lower carbon shipping solutions. Peninsula’s Tokyo office was integral in facilitating this deal through the strong relationship built with “K” LINE locally.

The smooth delivery also highlights Gibraltar and its Port Authority’s ambition in making their Port a key hub for LNG bunkering in the Mediterranean.

Peninsula’s Head of Sustainability and Alternative Fuels, Nacho de Miguel, said: “The LNG powered vessel order book is looking very healthy over the coming years. This further validates our decision to develop LNG bunkering solutions in the early stages of the marine fuel transition.

“Due to the ever-growing experience in supplies undertaken by our Alternative Fuels, Physical and Reselling desks, we are constantly increasing our ability to better service our customers. “K” LINE’s trust in Peninsula for supplying the Thor Highway is a testament to our growing presence in the LNG space and our ability to service customers from across the globe.”

DNV: How to develop and implement a successful decarbonization strategy

Classification society DNV on Tuesday (16 July) published a Maritime Impact article on tanker owner International Seaways’s decarbonization journey with the support of DNV:

International Seaways, Inc. embarked on an ambitious journey to put its entire tanker fleet on course for decarbonization, supported by DNV. An overall strategy and decarbonization plans for all vessels will help the company to achieve regulatory compliance in a cost-effective way while reducing business risk.

Achieving greenhouse gas emission compliance for an entire fleet of vessels can be a very complex task, both methodically and financially, and knowing where to start is not the easiest part of it. This is why DNV’s Maritime Advisory team offers a structured approach that helps shipowners develop a fleet-wide decarbonization plan – and engage the organization to support it.

A fast follower: Putting sustainability centre stage

International Seaways, Inc. (INSW) is a well-known New York-based tanker owner with a fleet of roughly 80 vessels of various types and sizes. The company has worked with DNV for many years and turned to DNV for support with its decarbonization strategy and plans. “We are a listed public company, so we have to be very thoughtful about how we invest our money,” explains William Nugent, Senior Vice President and Chief Technical and Sustainability Officer at International Seaways. “Our shareholders expect us to be careful stewards of their investments.”

Seeing the broader trends in the industry and the global drive to decarbonize, INSW wants to be “a fast follower”, he adds. “This means that we need to look at how our existing and future fleet matches IMO’s and Europe’s decarbonization intentions and especially those of our stakeholders.” Sustainability criteria are typically embedded in today’s finance agreements, he points out, lauding the Poseidon Principles, which have helped create a level playing field for the shipping world.

DNV’s strategy report: Guiding INSW towards compliance

The purpose of the fleet-wide decarbonization strategy and plans DNV developed jointly with INSW was to enable the company to meet or exceed the IMO decarbonization trajectories and EU regulations in an economically feasible manner while minimizing business risk. DNV delivered a strategy report to provide INSW with a solid understanding of the regulatory environment and the available options to achieve compliance, including operational optimization recommendations for the years to come. Furthermore, the delivery included a fuel performance management report as well as a roadmap and capital expenditure schedule for every single vessel, delivered on DNV’s Veracity platform.

Periodical updates keep decarbonization plans relevant

Lois Zabrocky, President and Chief Executive Officer of International Seaways, summarizes the objectives: “Of course, we want a plan to reduce our emissions and extend the lifetime of the vessels as much as possible. Today, we have a plan to … look at the trajectory of our emissions and all the available opportunities for us to decarbonize.”

As a living document, the decarbonization plan is reviewed and updated periodically with help from DNV as the INSW organization builds knowledge, experience and confidence.

Alignment throughout the enterprise and beyond

“The first step we embarked on together with DNV was taking the temperature of the organization,” recalls Nugent. All parts of the INSW organization from the CEO down to the crews, along with external partners such as commercial vessel management and charterers, were asked to participate in surveys to provide their views of INSW, their current decarbonization efforts and related questions. “We also conducted a technical review across the fleet and updated our educational processes for the whole organization around what decarbonization means, the goals, issues and challenges,” says Nugent.

Turning evaluation insights into actionable decarbonization plans

“This stepwise effort, guided by DNV, was thoughtful, well-timed and in-depth; it highlighted areas where we were very strong and others where we had work to do. It was presented in a way that was clear, concise and solution-oriented.” The resulting insights enabled INSW to benchmark the company against decarbonization best practices and put in place the decision tools to change the internal dialogue around decarbonization, which took many workshops and meetings involving all levels of the organization. “DNV took an industry’s worth of insights, feedback and knowledge and turned it into something very specific and actionable for International Seaways,” says Nugent.
