Port of Amsterdam and Titan LNG signed a long-term contract for the home location of Titan’s bunkering pontoon, the FlexFueler001.

The pontoon will be the first of its kind in Europe providing LNG bunkering services, Titan LNG said on Friday, adding the agreement underpins the ports’ ambition to facilitate the development of the LNG bunkering market in Amsterdam.

The central location in the America Harbour was selected to enable the transfer of LNG in various ways. Both trucks and LNG transport vessels can discharge LNG into the FlexFueler making it independent from the supply of large-scale terminals to load LNG.

The America Harbour is suitable to receive inland and seagoing vessels due to the draft of 9.70 meters alongside the FlexFueler. Normally, however, seagoing ships will be bunkered concurrent cargo operations alongside using a push boat.

LNG is rapidly becoming the fuel of choice for vessel owners and operators. Adoption is accelerating, as it is a cost-effective alternative. LNG is suitable for a wide range of vessel types and sizes and the use of LNG as marine fuel results in compliance with current and forthcoming IMO and EU regulations.
