Fjord Line to Bunker New LNG Ferries with Passengers Onboard (Norway)

The Norwegian Authorities are now prepared to give Fjord Line the permission to bunker it’s new LNG ferries while passengers are onboard the ship. As a result the ship owner would no longer have to send a large number of LNG trucks to Hirtshals to do the bunkering procedure in Denmark.

This means that we will be able to move about 80% of our bunkering to Risavika” explains Ingvald Fardal, CEO in Fjord Line, Norway, to Aftenbladet.

In it’s memorandum to the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) opens up for the possibility that Fjordline will be able to bunker with passengers onboard at the Harbor of Risavika.

Contrary to the Danish and Swedish Authorities, the Norwegian Authorities have up until now forbidden that the bunkering with LNG could take place while there are passengers onboard the ships.

Fjord Line buys the LNG of SKANGASS, with the SKANGASS LNG Terminal of Risavika being situated only a few 100 meters from the Fjord Line Terminal at Risavika Harbor.
