Netherlands-based maritime liquified natural gas (LNG) bunkering company Titan LNG on Wednesday (19 August) said it has added two German ports to its supply network in Europe
Titan chartered LNG bunkering vessel Engie Zeebrugge arrived at the port of Emden where it delivered just over 1000 metric tonnes (mt) of LNG to the car carrier Siem Confucius, owned by Siem Car Carriers and chartered by Volkswagen, it said.
Siem Car Carriers is the first owner to deploy LNG powered vessels for cross Atlantic Ocean trade.
After the first bunkering in Emden, Engie Zeebrugge sailed on to deliver 150 mt to the DEME-owned dredger Scheldt River in the port of Brunsbüttel.
This port on the entrance to the Kieler Channel is well positioned to become an LNG bunkering hub due to its strategic location Titan said it expects LNG bunkering activities will continue to increase in the future.
“The LNG bunkering operations in both Emden and Brunsbüttel mark the growth in Titan’s ambitions into different locations and shows the availability of LNG in the ports of Europe,” said Michael Schaap, Commercial Director Marine at Titan LNG.
“As Titan LNG, we are proud that these operations were executed safely and efficiently thanks to the excellent cooperation between all parties.
“We aim to deliver LNG anywhere and will add both Bio-LNG (BLNG) and Syn-LNG (SLNG), when available to decarbonize further.”
