Netherlands-based maritime liquified natural gas (LNG) technology company Titan LNG on Wednesday (18 March) said all its LNG bunker deliveries will resume in North West Europe with extra measures taken against the COVID-19 outbreak.
Titan LNG states it supports the need to continue business operations amid ongoing epidemic outbreak prevention and control measures to ensure the return to a normal work rhythm as well as a healthy global economy as soon as possible.
Consequently, Titan LNG will monitor and manage the COVID-19 situation based on plans and guidance related to pandemic preparedness, with the following guiding principles:
Currently, there are no limitations on the loading of LNG from any of the terminals Titan LNG utilises and the transport companies contracted by Titan, it states.
“Titan LNG would like to thank and support our supply chain partners for all their hard work over the last period: Donau AG, AMS, Nijman/Zeetank, Schenk Tanktransport, the Port of Rotterdam, and the Port of Amsterdam for taking and supporting the appropriate measures to continue to work safely and guarantee the delivery of LNG,” it said in a statement.
“The good news is the company is working together virtually and staying connected in these uncertain times to provide our clients and partners with the best possible customer support they may need.”
The company’s online platforms remain fully operational and they are ready to connect with customers through all of their channels.
