PitPoint.LNG has been granted the official permit for the construction of a shore-to-ship bunkering station for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the Port of Cologne.

The company, a joint venture between PitPoint clean fuels and Primagaz Nederland BV, said that civil engineering work is now scheduled to begin for the LNG bunkering station.

The station will facilitate the bunkering of inland waterways vessels that sail on the Rhine. It is set to be operational by the second quarter of 2019.

The permit, required under the Bundes-Immissionsschutzgesetz (German Emission Control Act) to guarantee the safety of LNG as a fuel for shipping, was formally granted by the District Government of Cologne earlier this week.

Construction of the LNG bunkering station in Cologne is part of PitPoint.LNG’s strategic aim to develop a European LNG infrastructure for transport by road and water.
