TITAN CARRIES OUT FIRST SHIP TO SHIP LNG BUNKERING IN GHENT

Friday, November 15, 2019 

In a joint effort between North Sea Port of Ghent and Titan LNG, the port's first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering has taken place, when Titan LNG delivered around 150t of LNG to the 'Fure Valo', an LNG powered tanker, built in 2018 and owned by the Swedish company Furetank.

Last year Titan LNG delivered LNG by truck-to-ship, as the first in the North Sea Port of Ghent. Eric de Jong, Manager Logistics Titan LNG, said: “This LNG bunkering marks the expansion of LNG delivery in the ports of Europe. 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.”

According to North Sea Port, water transport is an important element in its sustainability goal. Bunkering by barge saves several steps in the trajectory by road, therefore making ship-to-ship more efficient. As LNG is a cleaner fuel for shipping, it helps reduce emissions of CO2 and sulphur.
