Fjord Line Opens First Danish LNG Bunkering Terminal

Hirtshals

Port of Hirtshals became the first Danish port to offer LNG bunkering services following the opening of Fjord Line’s LNG terminal on July 1.

Fjord Line invested in a 500 cubic meters LNG tank and terminal facilities at Hirtshals to optimize operation of its two LNG-powered cruise ferries – M/S Bergensfjord and M/S Stavangerfjord – that sail the routes between Bergen, Stavanger and Hirtshals, as well as between Langesund and Hirtshals.

With the addition of the LNG bunkering station in Hirtshals, the two ferries can reduce their fuel loads and not carry more fuel than is needed.

”According to the plans, this LNG terminal is the first step in the future development. We wish to expand the terminal so that, in addition to bunkering our own two cruise ferries, M/S Bergensfjord and M/S Stavangerfjord, we can also offer bunkering to other ships running on LNG. With this, we are expanding the commercial foundation for the development of LNG supply for ships on one of the world’s most trafficked sailing routes,” said Morten Larsen, CEO at Fjord Line.
