Liquiline and Fjord Line to build first LNG bunkering terminal in Denmark

Liquiline and Fjord Line have entered into a contract for the construction of a dedicated LNG ship bunkering terminal in Denmark.

The terminal will be constructed at the Port of Hirtshals, where Fjord Line on a daily basis arrives with one of its two LNG-fuelled cruise ferries MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord. This will be the first LNG ship bunkering terminal in Denmark.

The ship bunkering terminal will be of Liquiline-design, a LiquiStation® Bulk™ ST2FF type. The terminal will have an on-site storage tank with a gross volume of 500m3 and a bunkering solution having a bunkering capacity of up to 400m3 of LNG per hour. This design will enable Fjord Line to bunker its ships within two hours, which is the time that the cruise ferries are docked to the port. The ship bunkering terminal is expected to be operational in Q4 2014.

The two cruise ferries are trading between Norway and Denmark. They each have a capacity of 1,500 passengers and 600 cars, trucks and cargo. They are fitted with Rolls-Royce Marine gas engines. MS Stavangerfjord was commissioned and set in operation in July 2013. MS Bergensfjord was commissioned and set in operation in March 2014.
