Rotterdam’s Gate Terminal is experiencing a surge in demand for LNG bunkering, necessitating the expansion of capacity at the Dutch hub, reports EN Port News.

Call for Expressions of Interest

The terminal has initiated a call for expressions of interest in constructing a new jetty specifically for small-scale LNG loading. This announcement was made via a note on the terminal’s website on Monday.

Rising Sales

The Port of Rotterdam witnessed a notable increase in LNG bunker sales, reaching 619,243 m3 last year compared to 406,599 m3 in the previous year.

Current Infrastructure

Currently, the terminal operates with a single jetty dedicated to small-scale LNG loading, primarily catering to the bunker market.

Need for Expansion

With the existing jetty operating at high occupancy and a positive outlook for the LNG bunker market in Northwest Europe, the terminal recognizes the need for an additional jetty to accommodate growth in small-scale loading.

Environmental Considerations

The expansion project also emphasizes the importance of environmental sustainability. Providing shore power to reduce NOX and GHG emissions during vessel stays at the jetty is within the scope of the project.

Submission Deadline

Interested parties are invited to submit their proposals to the company by April 12.
