Accordingly, the bunker station will be consrtcted from September in the southern part of Port Mukran at berth 1.

The bunkering service will be 24/7 available for vessels that operate in the Baltic Sea. The bunkering facility will also serve offshore wind farm supply vessels and tugs. Also, the partners stated that the facility will be automated and the bunkering could be conducted with the use of a card.

Thomas Hoyer, Managing Partner of Wilhelm Hoyer commented

Thanks to the high shipping demand in Mukran, we will strengthen our refueling network in Germany and in the Baltic Sea Region with this investment.

Located on Germany’s island of Rügen, the deepwater port encompasses ferry, rail, multipurpose and offshore terminals on a total area of around 430 hectares.

Back in 2018, the Mukran Port conducted its first-ever LNG bunker delivery, completed by LNG supplier Titan LNG.
