Titan LNG, a leading LNG supplier to marine and industrial customers, confirmed that it has successfully completed the first-ever LNG bunker delivery at Port of Amsterdam to a sea-going vessel.
The company supplied the 144 m long, 17 557 deadweight tonnes (dwt) oil products tanker Furetank-owned Fure West, with 220 m3 of LNG. Delivery took place at the Groene Kade in Amsterdam via five trucks, with the whole operation carefully planned and executed within 12 hours.
Commenting on the operation, Michael Schaap, Commercial Director Marine, Titan LNG, said: “We are proud to be the first company to bunker LNG to a sea-going vessel in the Port of Amsterdam, and look forward to supplying more vessels with LNG as a fuel in the near future. Our aim is to build on this experience to further streamline operations, and to make bunkering of LNG just as common as delivering traditional oil product bunker fuel."
Titan LNG would like to sincerely thank the following project partners and sponsors for their efforts and support in ensuring the successful completion of this project: Skangas, Nijman Zeetank, Jongeneel transport, Vopak Agencies, and the Port of Amsterdam.
