Titan LNG application for bunkering location on the Western Scheldt approved

12 Jan 2021

Netherlands-based maritime liquified natural gas (LNG) bunkering company Titan LNG on Monday (11 January) said its bunkering pontoon FlexFueler successfully bunkered the hopper dredger Scheldt River, owned by DEME Group on the Western Scheldt on 30 December.

Titan LNG said it has identified this as a strategic location for LNG bunkering, which is why the company has submitted an application to conduct LNG bunkering operations in the region.

The Joint Nautical Authority, Gemeenschappelijke Nautische Autoriteit (GNA) drew up a recommendation together with the Zeeland Safety Region, and the Permanent Commission for Supervision of the Scheldt Navigation has approved this recommendation.

“We thank Beheer en Exploitatieteam VTS-Scheldt for facilitating this bunkering for the first time on the river, instead of at a quay, which is a first,” said Titan LNG in a brief social media post.
