Europe’s first shore-to-ship bunkering station for liquefied natural gas has been filled with LNG for the first time.

The LNG bunker station was built by PitPoint along the busiest waterway in Europe – the Rhine, in the port of Cologne, Germany.

It’s the first permanent location in Europe where barges can refuel with LNG. At the moment, LNG-fuelled barges are typically supplied using tank trucks.

PitPoint said via social media that its LNG tank, which has a capacity of up to 200 cbm, was filled with LNG for the first time by partner Prima LNG.

According to the company, the opening of the station offers many new advantages to the inland shipping sector, including greater flexibility.
