Largest LNG bunkering
The largest global LNG bunkering operation on record took place at a Dutch port. The bunkering was carried out with the most powerful semi-submersible crane vessel.
Operation by Titan LNG
Titan LNG organised the operation for Heerema’s Sleipnir to receive 3,300 metric tonnes of LNG from Anthony Veder’s LNG carrier Coral Fraseri in the Port of Rotterdam.
The delivery at the port took less than twenty-four hours to complete.
Titan LNG CEO’s comment
Niels den Nijs, CEO of Titan LNG, commented that LNG bunkering was becoming a routine operation for the Dutch companies involved because of the excellent cooperation between all parties.
“Building on our 5 previous deliveries around the globe, we formulated and safely executed our plan of operation. As Titan LNG, we are proud of this operation in one of our home ports. It was extra special that we could also supply our bunker barge, the FlexFueler 001, with cargo from the LNG carrier.”
Sleipnir financially advantageous
“Sleipnir demonstrates that it is financially advantageous to sail on LNG, even in remote parts of the world. We are proud to contribute to making the world a little greener by supplying LNG as fuel anywhere.”
Greenest port ambition
Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority said the port’s ambition is to be the ‘greenest port in the world’.
He noted that “never before has a vessel bunkered as much LNG fuel as Sleipnir”.
“I am proud that the vessel bunkered in Port of Rotterdam because that plays tribute to Rotterdam being the ideal LNG hub for import, export, storage, and bunkering.”
