Titan LNG, liquefied natural gas supplier to the marine and industrial markets in North West Europe, said it has significantly reduced the bunkering time during an operation at the port of Amsterdam last week. 

The company has bunkered the Swedish M/T Fure West in Amsterdam on May 19, using equipment that combines the flow from 2 trucks into 1 bunkering hose, named the T-piece.

The equipment reduces the time required for the truck-to-ship bunkering operation compared to sequential truck deliveries. The combined pumping rate reached 28 tons/hour.

During the port call, six trucks in total were delivered using the T-piece, Titan LNG said in its statement.

Didier de Beaumont, commercial manager, Port of Amsterdam said, “the procedure was permitted at the ‘Groene Kade’ LNG quay by the Port of Amsterdam Harbourmaster based on a quantitative risk assessment.”

This makes the port of Amsterdam “the first in the wider region that is able to approve the simultaneous discharging of 2 trucks,” he said, adding that the port authority expects this efficiency leap to accelerate the transition to LNG as a marine fuel.

Titan LNG’s Michael Schaap noted that the new technology is a new step forward in preparation for the launching of the company’s LNG bunkering pontoon, the FlexFueler, next year.
