Titan LNG, the service supplier of liquefied natural gas, completed the first sea-going vessel LNG bunkering operation in the North Sea Port. 

The truck-to-ship bunkering operation was carried out at Kluizendok in Ghent, with LNG being pumped to the sea-going vessel Fure West from trucks on the quay, North Sea Port said in its statement.

The tanker with a length of 144 m, is owned by the Swedish shipping company Furetank.

The ship was supplied by 8 trucks carrying about 19 tons of LNG each, a total of over 150 tons of LNG. The trucks loaded the LNG from Rotterdam and Zeebrugge.

The port added that it aims to make the LNG bunkering operations a routine in the North Sea Port in the future.

North Sea Port is investigating further opportunities for LNG bunkering using the ship-to-ship method.
