Port of Dunkerque names partners for LNG bunkering project

The French port of Dunkirk informed it has chosen three companies to cooperate with on the project study on the setup of LNG bunkering facilities. 

The port called for expressions of interest (CEI) for the setup of a marine bunkering and on-land supply chain of small-scale LNG in April last year and after evaluating the submissions it chose a group comprised of Dunkerque LNG, Air Liquide and Exmar, Dunkirk-port said in a statement.

The group will undertake a comprehensive study of the project to determine the best conditions for its realization.

During the first phase it is proposed that the loading arms and the main wharf of the LNG terminal, currently under construction, be adapted to rapidly allow the supply of LNG to ships with capacities of up to 2,000 m3.

In a second phase, the consortium proposes to create a marine station specifically dedicated to bunkering, which could accommodate ships with capacities of between 2,000 and 20,000 m3.

Port of Dunkirk said the agreement with the winning group is being drafted and in parallel,  call for funding under the European Union’s TEN-T proposals scheme will be issued by February 26.
