On 4 September, both the “Wilgas” and the “Coral Methane”, were moored and reloaded simultaneously at the jetties of the Dutch Gate LNG terminal.
This is the first time in its history Gate has simultaneously reloaded two LNG carriers.
Reloading of LNG at the terminal in the port of Rotterdam started in 2013. Since the modifications of the existing jetties to accommodate smaller ships, Gate has carried out 16 operations for these types of vessels.
The investment decision for the construction of a new break bulk terminal was taken on 1 July this year, which comprises a dedicated berth for small-scale LNG tankers and bares to enable future growth.
