Port of Amsterdam and Titan LNG have signed a long-term contract for the home location of Titan’s bunkering pontoon: the FlexFueler001. This pontoon will be the first of its kind in Europe providing LNG bunkering services providing competition to other nearby ports led by Zeebrugge that have already unveiled LNG fuelling plans.
Koen Overtoom, CEO of the Port of Amsterdam, commented: “We believe in LNG as a shipping fuel and Titan LNG’s solution fits very well with our strategic focus on becoming a sustainable port and our transition to renewable energy. We strive to connect the port seamlessly to the fast growing metropolitan area, and lowering pollution is a top priority. We are looking forward to the launch of the FlexFueler001 at the end of this year.”
Both trucks and LNG transport vessels can discharge LNG into the FlexFueler making it independent from supply of large-scale terminals to load LNG.
