Cryostar and KC LNG to build Antwerp LNG facility


Cryostar and KC LNG have been awarded the contract for building an LNG ship bunkering and truck fuelling facility at the Port of Antwerp. The project developers are Fluxys, G&V, Titan LNG and Rolande.


Cryostar and KC LNG are set to commission the LNG facility in the first quarter of 2020. The facility will allow the project partners to widen the LNG fuelling options at quay 526/528 in the port of Antwerp, where currently truck-to-ship bunkering is offered. LNG-powered inland waterway ships will be able to dock at quay 526/528 for bunkering from a fixed storage unit while LNG powered trucks will be able to refuel at the facility as well.


"We are proud to be part of delivering this solution with some of the leading LNG players in Europe. We think that this project is yet another testament to the rapid development of the LNG market. Easily accessible and affordable LNG is in high demand, and we want to be at the forefront with more solutions that accommodate this demand," commented Frej Olsen, Head of Group, LNG MAKEEN Energy


Furthermore, mid-2020 the FlexFueler002 LNG bunkering barge will become operational in the greater Antwerp port area Ship-to-Ship LNG bunkering on a larger scale.

With the increasing focus on sustainability and green solutions, the reduction of harmful emissions offered by LNG is an attractive feature for more and more companies.
