In a first for the terminal, Gate recently loaded two small LNG carriers at the same time.
The Cardissa LNG bunkering vessel was at the dedicated small scale jetty, while the ice-class Coral Energice was loaded at Jetty 1, one of the two jetties that can handle both small and large scale LNG carriers.
Simultaneously a record daily number of 12 LNG trailers/containers were loaded.
Gate has seen a steady increase in its small scale LNG activities since the dedicated third small scale LNG jetty became operational in 2016, along with the additional two automated LNG truckloading bays in 2017. Gate notes that it continues to see a growing interest in its small scale services.
