The Gate terminal in the Dutch port of Rotterdam said it has for the first time loaded two small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers at the same time on May 1.
The Dutch first LNG terminal said in a statement that Shell’s Cardissa LNG bunkering vessel was loaded at the dedicated small-scale jetty while Anthony Veder’s ice-class Coral Energice received LNG at the terminal’s first jetty, one of the two jetties that can handle both small and large scale LNG carriers.
In addition, Gate said it loaded a record daily number of 12 LNG trailers.
“Ever since the dedicated third small-scale LNG jetty became operational in 2016 and the additional two automated LNG truck loading bays in 2017, Gate has seen a steady increase in its small-scale LNG activities,” the statement said.
Gate added it continues to see a growing interest in its small-scale LNG services.
