11NOV2019 - NEWS - 1st LNG Bunkering in Nagoya Port – Developing an LNG Fuel Supply Terminal and Promoting the Use of Natural Gas – Toho Gas Co., Ltd.
Toho Gas and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines yesterday announced the implementation of a demonstration test to supply LNG (LNG bunkering) to the LNG-fueled tugboat Ishin in the Port of Nagoya. This marked the first LNG bunkering in the Port of Nagoya, and the test confirmed that LNG can be safely supplied to vessels at the port.
LNG was transported via truck from the Toho Gas Chita-Midorihama LNG Terminal (Chita-shi, Aichi Prefecture), and supplied with a truck-to-ship system to Ishin, berthed at the Port of Nagoya’s Garden Pier.
Based on the findings of the demonstration test, Toho Gas and MOL will continue working to reduce the environmental impact of the maritime industry by promoting the use of LNG fuel by vessels calling at the Port of Nagoya.
