Uniper SE and the Dutch Titan LNG have signed a memorandum of understanding to accelerate the growth of LNG as a fuel in the downstream markets for industry, road fuel and shipping fuel in Germany.<
Both parties are planning to develop a user-friendly technical interface and commercial products for small-scale LNG players from the Wilhelmshaven floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for LNG. The terminal in Wilhelmshaven will enable the loading of small LNG seagoing vessels and barges. In addition, several truck loading bays are planned to enable the onward transport of LNG by road.
The distribution of LNG by truck from Wilhelmshaven is seen as an important impulse for the establishment of LNG as truck fuel. Numerous LNG filling stations are currently under construction in Germany. Compared to diesel, LNG will significantly reduce CO2 emissions. In addition, no particles are emitted and nitrogen and sulfur oxide emissions are reduced. The German Federal Government supports logistics companies with subsidies and the toll-free use of German roads for LNG-powered trucks.
