21NOV2019 - NEWS - Ghent hosts its first LNG STS bunkering
In a joint effort between North Sea Port and Titan LNG, the first ship-to-ship (STS) LNG bunkering in the port of Ghent has been completed.
Titan LNG delivered approximately 150 t of LNG to the Fure Valo, an LNG powered tanker, built in 2018 and owned by the Swedish company Furetank. Last year Titan LNG delivered LNG by truck-to-ship for the first time in the port of Ghent.
Eric de Jong, Manager Logistics Titan LNG: “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 fulfill our mission to make LNG available everywhere. We are proud to have safely and efficiently delivered this STS bunkering for the first time in Ghent.”
