Zeebrugge, first Arctic LNG carrier docks
Transports LNG for bunkering to Scandinavian ports
Fluxys has completed the operations of LNG loading of the first “ice” class LNG carrier at the Belgian terminal in Zeebrugge.
The carrier, called Coral EnergICE, has a capacity of 18,000 m3 and it can also navigate in the Arctic waters. It will serve to supply LNG for ship bunkering at northern Scandinavian ports.
For the time being, underlines a message of Fluxys, in Europe around 100 ships are fueled with LNG. This figure is bound to double by 2020 when new regulation on sulfur emissions enter into force. The development of new infrastructure for the small scale LNG is thus indispensable to accompany this evolution.
