North West European LNG supplier Titan LNG bunkered the Wes Amelie chartered by Unifeeder A/S, a retrofitted 1000 TEU container vessel in the Port of Rotterdam, with 6 trucks in total discharging 2 trucks simultaneously. This resulted in reduced downtime for the vessel and it was another first racked up by the company.
Approval for the operation in the Prins Willem Alexanderhaven was obtained after constructive discussions with all stakeholders under supervision of the Port of Rotterdam. Titan LNG successfully illustrated its ability to safely and with zero-venting of methane deliver the LNG with its transfer system that enables two truck to discharge via one bunkering hose.
Michael Schaap, Commercial Director Marine, commented: ”We are aiming to use this perfect spot more frequently for bunkering sea going vessels as the quay is suitable and well located for this activity and has sufficient draft.”
