Dutch small-scale supplier Titan LNG has recently bunkered the Wes Amelie chartered by Unifeeder A/S, a retrofitted 1000 TEU container vessel in the Port of Rotterdam.

The bunkering operation was conducted on October 27 with 6 trucks in total.

To reduce downtime for the vessel, 2 trucks were discharging simultaneously, Titan LNG said in a statement.

According to Titan LNG, this was the first time in the LNG bunkering market that 2 trucks bunkered a vessel at the same time.

Approval for the operation in the Prins Willem Alexanderhaven was obtained after discussions with all stakeholders under supervision of the Port of Rotterdam.

Titan LNG “successfully illustrated its ability” to safely and with zero-venting of methane deliver the LNG with its transfer system that enables two truck to discharge via one bunkering hose, the company said

Michael Schaap, Commercial Director Marine, commented: ”We are aiming to use this perfect spot more frequently for bunkering sea going vessels as the quay is suitable and well located for this activity and has sufficient draft.”
