KPI OceanConnect, has collaborated with Titan Clean Fuels, and SFL to successfully complete an LNG bunkering operation for the newly built car carrier, the Emden, taking place in the Port of Emden.
s KPI OceanConnect explains, executing an LNG cool down and bunkering operation entails different challenges, often requiring more time-consuming and detailed processes compared to a conventional fuel supply, including compatibility assessments between the receiving vessel and the LNG bunkering vessel.
This operation highlights our commitment to consistently serve our clients as a trustworthy provider of cleaner fuels and we look forward to continuing to enhance our LNG and bio-LNG bunkering capabilities as the market grows, enabling us to supply (bio)LNG to even larger vessels.
… said Michael Schaap, Commercial Director, Titan
The three companies collectively recognise LNG as a crucial component of the future fuel mix for the maritime industry. According to KPI OceanConnect’s statement, LNG offers substantial environmental benefits, with potential GHG emission reductions of up to 23% on a well-to-wake basis and depending on engine technology.
We are incredibly proud of the trust displayed in us by a forward-thinking owner such as SFL, and delighted to have partnered with a world-class supplier, Titan, to complete this supply of 3,000 CBM of LNG.
