Port of Antwerp upgrades LNG bunkering services

The LNG-powered coastal tanker Sefarina performed on Monday a bunkering operation in Belgium’s Port of Antwerp.

Chemgas Shipping’s Sefarina is the first ship to obtain a particulates discount, and also the first seagoing vessel to be bunkered with LNG in the port by the truck-to-ship method, the Port of Antwerp said in a statement.

Bunkering with the chilled gas has already been possible in the port for some time, but so far it has been used only for two LNG-powered barges, the Argonon and the Greenstream.

The liquefied natural gas was sourced from Fluxys-operated Zeebrugge terminal and pumped into Sefarina by LNG tank trucks of Schenk Tanktransport.
