Titan LNG completes first SIMOPS in Port of Rotterdam
The Dutch service supplier of liquefied natural gas, Titan LNG has hit another milestone recently in the Port of Rotterdam.
In cooperation with Furetank Rederi and VTTI, Titan LNG’s FlexFueler 001 delivered LNG as a fuel to the vessel Ramelia whilst working cargo at the Eurotank Terminal
It was the first time a simultaneous operation (SIMOPS) to take place with LNG bunkering at the Eurotank Terminal in Rotterdam, Titan LNG said.
This allowed the Ramelia to unload cargo whilst receiving LNG bunkers.
This step enables the receiving vessel to have a quicker turnaround in the port as it does not have to shift to a designated LNG bunkering location, such as the Titan LNG facility.
Titan LNG will continue to engage with various other terminals throughout the ARA region to ensure more SIMOPS can be realized, the company said.
