Nauticor Extends LNG Supply Network for Ships to Rotterdam Port

Hamburg-based supplier of LNG Nauticor has extended its LNG supply network for ships within the North Sea region by including the Port of Rotterdam. 

The company has been awarded the contract for a bunker operation in Rotterdam for the first time.

The first bunker operation by Nauticor in the port saw the containership Wes Amelie receive the chilled fuel. In 2017, Wes Amelie became the world’s first boxship retrofitted to LNG.

In total, the vessel received six truck loads, which is equal to 120 tons of LNG, during the bunker operation that took place on February 20, 2018. As informed, Nauticor is currently in charge of organizing LNG supply for Wes Amelie, which is chartered to Unifeeder A/S and operates as a feeder vessel between Rotterdam and ports in the Baltic Sea region, throughout Germany, and to the Dutch Port of Moerdijk.

„We are continuously working on optimizing the LNG supply for ships and feel well-prepared for more bunker operations at this location. Another important milestone for the development of the LNG supply infrastructure in North & Baltic Seas will be our new LNG bunker vessel, which will be put into operation before the end of this year,“ Sonja Neßhöver, Director of the LNG Portfolio of Nauticor, commented.

During its first bunker operation in the Port of Rotterdam, Nauticor set a new record for the speed of a bunker operation with an unloading rate of up to 40 tons of LNG per hour. To achieve this, the Nauticor team used its bunkering technique where two LNG trucks are unloaded simultaneously.
