Titan bunkers DEME’s LNG dredger at German Mukran Port
Titan LNG, the service supplier of liquefied natural gas, completed the first LNG bunkering operation at Mukran Port on the island of Rügen in the Baltic Sea.
A total of seven trucks delivered LNG as fuel for DEME’s liquefied natural gas-fueled trailing suction hopper dredger Scheldt River, the company said in its statement on Friday.
“The approval process for obtaining clearance to bunker is becoming more standardized and approvals are received faster from the ports. LNG as a bunker fuel is gaining traction as the fuel itself, the financial and operational benefits are becoming well-known,” Jippe van Eijnatten, business development manager at Titan LNG said.
Besides the truck-to-ship LNG bunkering operations, Titan LNG is gearing towards the ship-to-ship bunkering services in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp area once its FlexFueler001 bunkering pontoon currently under construction hits the water at the start of 2019.
