Titan LNG, the supplier of LNG to the marine and industrial markets in North West Europe, has taken the final investment decision on the first LNG bunkering pontoon in Europe, the FlexFueler1.

The pontoon, financed with the support of the Province of North-Holland will be stationed in the Port of Amsterdam where it will serve as a stationary delivery location to inland water barges and small sea-going vessels.

The operations are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2018, Titan LNG said in its statement.

Vessels that require bunkers to be delivered while simultaneously loading and discharging their own cargo, will be served by deploying the FlexFueler alongside these larger vessels throughout the Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp region.

The company added that other developing regions have shown interest for the FlexFueler LNG bunkering pontoon.

Having the ability to deliver LNG in a range from 30 to 600 cubic meters (cbm) per hour, the FlexFueler1 will initially be outfitted with two 380-cbm tanks, with the option to add two further tanks in line with increasing market demand.

Niels den Nijs, CEO Titan LNG said the company believes the “decision to build the Titan LNG FlexFueler1 will contribute to the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel in this vital bunkering region.”

He adds that the vessel can load LNG from trucks, LNG transport vessels or the Gate LNG terminal in Rotterdam.
