The new LNG plant at the Port of Dunkirk was used recently to bunker an LNG-fuelled ice breaker and to load the 153,000 m3 LNG carrier PROVALYS in quick succession.

According to the Port of Dunkirk (GPM de Dunkerque), the new terminal is in full swing and operating at high levels of performance. The facility registered 866,000t of LNG during 2017 and will be able to load vessels at 8,800 m3/h by the end of this year.

The EDF/Total LNG terminal is planned to meet more than 20% of French LNG demand.

The Port of Bilbao has reported that it has hosted ship-to-ship bunkering for the first time and also a first for any European Atlantic Arc port. In the pilot trial, the converted bunker vessel OIZMENDI, belonging to Itsas Gas, transferred 90 m3 of LNG to a Molgas cement carrier.

Itsas Gas is a venture of Ente Vasco de la Energía (Vasco Government), Remolcadores Ibaizabal and Naviera Murueta.

Construction of the new LNG fterminal is now under way at the Port of Gothenburg. The facility will open up new opportunities for LNG-fuelled ships that call at the Gothenburg Energy Port. It will become fully operational during 2018.

Ship-to-ship LNG bunkering is already available in Gothenburg, provided by Skangas. Swedegas, which owns and runs the Swedish gas transmission network, is building the new LNG plant in the port.
