Titan LNG highlights first STS LNG bunkering operation of Port of Ghent

21 Nov 2019

The first ship-to-ship bunkering of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has taken place at the Port of Ghent, Belgium on Tuesday (19 November) night, said Titan LNG.

In a joint effort between the North Sea Port and Titan LNG, around 150 tons of LNG was delivered to the Fure Valo, an LNG-powered tanker built in 2018 and owned by the Swedish company Furetank.

“This LNG bunkering marks the expansion of LNG delivery in the ports of Europe,” said Eric de Jong, Manager Logistics Titan LNG.

“We are very pleased with the support of North Sea Port, to fulfil our mission to make LNG available everywhere. We are proud to have safely and efficiently delivered this ship-to-ship bunkering for the first time in Ghent.”

“North Sea Port stimulates sustainable solutions,” said a company representative.

“The transportation by water is an important element. Bunkering by barge saves several steps in the trajectory by road, therefore making ship-to-ship more efficient. Plus, LNG is a cleaner fuel for shipping, that reduces emissions of CO2 and sulphur.”
