The port of Ferrol hosted its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation recently as Repsol bunkered Torghatten Nord vessels, Huftarøy and Samnøy.

The LNG-fueled ferries have been built at the Turkish Tersan Shipyard and are on their way to their base in the Norwegian fjords.

The LNG bunkering operations were carried out on the outer jetty where small and medium-sized cruise ships usually dock when they visit the city, the Port Authority of Ferrol-San Cibrao said.

With a length of 134 meters and a width of 21m, both vessels have been designed to transport up to 545 people and up to 180 vehicles.

To remind, the operations have been conducted by Repsol, which used five tankers that had previously been filled with LNG at the Reganosa terminal.

The Samnøy received about 110 cubic meters of fuel whereas the Huftarøy was supplied with 68 cubic meters, the port of Ferrol said.

Spanish LNG terminal operator Reganosa is currently working on converting Ferrol into a LNG hub of the Iberian northwest, adapting its Mugardos facilities for small-scale liquefied natural gas traffic. The Parliament of Galicia itself has fully supported this project as an strategic step forward.
