A new partnership will create an LNG bunkering facility at the Port of Gothenburg to allow it to meet both customers’ and LNG suppliers’ needs going forward.

MAN Cryo, MAN Diesel & Turbo’s marine-LNG fuel-gas-system manufacturer, is working with Swedish infrastructure company, Swedegas, to deliver the facility which will enable vessels to bunker LNG from trucks or containers while simultaneously loading/unloading cargo, dispensing with the need to make a separate refuelling stop.

“Our strategy to offer LNG solutions to the marine market, both on board vessels as fuel-gas supply systems but also as bunkering infrastructure, dovetails perfectly with the general development towards cleaner ship propulsion,” said Mikael Adler, managing director of MAN Diesel & Turbo, Sweden.

“We strive to bring robust, smart and flexible solutions to the market and this strategic project is an excellent example of that.”

The purpose-built facility will comprise of a discharge station for LNG trailers or containers, feeding pumps, vacuum-insulated piping and bunkering equipment to facilitate efficient operations. The installation will also satisfy the stricter sulphur directive for shipping.

MAN Cryo will oversee the project under the terms of an EPC contract including engineering, procurement and construction and it will be managed from MAN Diesel & Turbo’s local Gothenburg office.

The facility is scheduled to open during 2018 and will be operated and managed by Swedegas in close cooperation with the Port of Gothenburg.
