Zeebrugge LNG marks another first
Fluxys Belgium, the operator of the Zeebrugge LNG terminal, marked a new milestone at the facility.
The company noted the first customer, Prima LNG, loaded an LNG container at the facility for rail transport from the Zeebrugge port.
Fluxys Belgium said this widens the destination flexibility of volumes provided by the facility.
The Zeebrugge LNG terminal cooperated with several partners to combine services available in the port into an intermodal logistics chain.
Intermodal LNG transport is a proposition with several advantages, Fluxys said.
It reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants while being more cost-efficient and reaching new destinations across Europe.
The port of Zeebrugge has particularly good connections with the four major rail hubs in Europe: Antwerp, Cologne, Rotterdam and Dourges. From there, LNG containers can be further dispatched across Europe.
