Titan LNG chartered the Engie Zeebrugge and loaded LNG in Rotterdam. Then the vessel arrived in the port of Emden where Titan LNG delivered just over 1,000 tons of LNG to the car carrier Siem Confucius, owned by Siem Car Carriers and chartered by Volkswagen. Siem Car Carriers is the first owner to deploy LNG-powered vessels for cross Atlantic Ocean trade.
After the first bunkering in Emden the LNG bunker vessel sailed on to deliver 150 tons to the DEME-owned dredger Scheldt River in the port of Brunsbüttel. Titan has supplied the Scheldt River regularly before, and now for the first time also in Brunsbüttel. This port on the entrance to the Kieler Channel is well positioned to become an LNG bunkering hub due to its strategic location.
“The LNG bunkering operations in both Emden and Brunsbüttel mark the growth in Titan’s ambitions into different locations and shows the availability of LNG in the ports of Europe. We are proud that these operations were executed safely and efficiently thanks to the excellent cooperation between all parties. We aim to deliver LNG anywhere and will add both bio-LNG and synthetic LNG, when available to decarbonize further,” said Michael Schaap, Commercial Director Marine at Titan LNG.
Titan LNG thanked the port of Emden, the port of Brunsbüttel, DEME, Volkswagen and Siem Car Carriers for placing their trust to carry out the LNG bunkering operations. The collaboration with the owners of the Engie Zeebrugge was also imperative in the success of these milestone operations.
