The German utility, RWE and Duisport have agreed to jointly create the necessary infrastructure to use LNG in the Duisburg port.

The goal is to develop and implement a joint and sustainable logistics concept for the provision, storage, distribution and utilization of LNG, RWE said in its statement on Wednesday.

A space for the new LNG service station has already been chosen, the statement reads, and the partners have previously been working together to evaluate the possible application of LNG to replace diesel fuels.

As a first step, a mobile fuel pump will be installed that can be easily relocated if needed. The pump will be used in the pilot phase to supply LNG to port vehicles as well as lorries from local logistics companies. The vehicles will be converted to LNG supply and thoroughly tested in daily operations.

The investment required for this first step amount to about €500,000 (Approx: US$521,600).
