Titan LNG charters Green Zeebrugge from Japan’s Nippon Yusen Kaisha
Ship fuel supplier Titan LNG is taking the Green Zeebrugge from Japan's Nippon Yusen Kaisha on a long-term charter.
Previously known as the Engie Zeebrugge, after becoming the sole owner of the vessel, NYK recently renamed the vessel the 5,200 cu m Green Zeebrugge.
The agreement provides for the Green Zeebrugge charter of Titan LNG for several years from February 2021. The vessel will be used in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) Region to supply LNG to larger LNG-fuelled vessels.
As Titan LNG gears up, the Green Zeebrugge is added to the two already working barges, FlexFueler's 001 and 002.
In early 2023, the Titan LNG Hyperion, an 8,000 cu m vessel approaching final investment decision, may be in service. It plans to have the largest network of LNG bunkering vessels in Europe by 2025, Titan LNG has said.
Titan LNG will soon supply so-called bio-LNG which, using existing infrastructure and engine technology, can be dropped in and blended with LNG. Titan is designing the next step of using green hydrogen to convert into e-fuels, or synthetic liquid gas, for introduction in 2024.
“From all available E-Fuels like ammonia and methanol, synthetic LG is the only fuel with global existing infrastructure to serve the marine industry and the best energy density,” said Titan LNG in a press release.
