The port noted that the chemical tanker Ramelia received LNG from Titan’s FlexFueler 001 barge at the SEA-Tank terminal.

Titan LNG’s second bunkering barge, the FlexFueler 002 to be christened later this year will be based in the port of Antwerp.

The Ramelia, owned by company Älvtank from Sweden, sixth vessel delivered to the LNG powered product tankers fleet of the Gothia Tankers Alliance.

FlexFueler 001 started operations in June 2019, and is designed to have a fixed location to supply inland waterway vessels, but can also be navigated to larger sea-going vessels and supply LNG while they load or unload their cargo.
