The Netherlands-based LNG company will supply marine LNG to Nor Lines’ gas-powered multipurpose vessels, MV Kvitnos and MV Kvitbjørn, at the Port of Rotterdam.
The vessels have been allocated to a bi-weekly liner service from the SCA terminal in the Dutch port to the Norwegian coast.
Like Wes Amelie, the world’s first containership to be converted to run on LNG, the Nor Lines vessels are being bunkered by truck at the City Terminal in the Prins Willem Alexander harbour.
Titan LNG says it has, along with the Port of Rotterdam, set up the site temporarily to bunker LNG to sea-going vessels ‘until there are sufficient LNG bunker barges available’.
Meanwhile, as previously reported, Titan LNG’s FlexFueler001 LNG bunkering pontoon is expected to begin operations in the Port of Amsterdam later this year. The pontoon boasts a double bottom, double hull with a length of 70 metres and will be fitted with up to four tanks, each with a capacity of 300 cubic metres (cbm).
