A Belgium port has completed its first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering to secure its future in the LNG business.

In a joint effort between the North Sea Port and Titan LNG, Titan LNG’s FlexFueler001 delivered around 150t of LNG to Furetank’s tanker Fure Valo at the Port of Ghent. Last year Titan LNG completed the first delivery of LNG by truck-to-ship in the Port of Ghent.

Speaking about the operation on 19 November, Eric de Jong, manager of logistics at Titan LNG, said: “This LNG bunkering marks the expansion of LNG delivery in the ports of Europe.

“We are very pleased with the support of North Sea Port, to fulfil our mission to make LNG available everywhere. We are proud to have safely and efficiently delivered this ship-to-ship bunkering for the first time in Ghent.”

North Sea Port stated: “North Sea Port stimulates sustainable solutions. The transportation by water is an important element. Bunkering by barge saves several steps in the trajectory by road, therefore making ship-to-ship more efficient. Plus LNG is a cleaner fuel for shipping, that reduces emissions of CO2 and sulphur.”

Earlier this month, Titan LNG assisted with the bunkering of the Paans Van Oord-owned, LNG-powered crane vessel, the Werkendam, at the Port of IJmuiden,
