The service supplier of liquefied natural gas Titan LNG, in cooperation with the Port of IJmuiden and OD IJmond, completed the first bunkering of LNG to the Werkendam, Van Oord’s LNG-powered crane vessel.

The Werkendam is fully powered by LNG, with gas oil as a back-up.

“This first for the Port of IJmuiden is another important step for LNG bunkering, the port is strategically located for bunkering activities and the operation today further acknowledges our strong track record in LNG bunkering,” according to Jippe van Eijnatten, director business development at Titan LNG.

“The permitting process was thorough and in good cooperation with OD IJmond and Port of IJmuiden,” he said.

The installed tank on the aft deck of the vessel has the capacity to hold 35 cubic meters of LNG.

In comparison with diesel, LNG emits 80 percent less particulate matter and 70 percent less nitrogen oxides. A CO2 reduction of around 25 percent is also achieved.
