Titan LNG to Supply LNG for Rederij Doeksen Ships

Dutch ferry company Rederij Doeksen and LNG supplier Titan LNG have signed a long-term agreement for the supply of LNG as a shipping fuel to newbuild ferries.

As informed, the vessels, Willem de Vlamingh and Willem Barentsz, will be bunkered at the Rederij Doeksen location in Harlingen by trucks on a weekly basis.

Both ferries will operate on the ferry route to the Dutch islands of Vlieland and Terschelling. As the vessels will only use LNG as fuel, the ferry service can be provided in a much more environmentally friendly way, reducing harmful emissions in the UNESCO heritage area the Waddenzee, according to Titan LNG.

“After an intensive period of preparations to get the two new ferries into service, we have found in Titan LNG the best partner to supply LNG for our vessels,” Richard de Vries, Head of Operations at Rederij Doeksen, commented.

“Based on a shared philosophy that LNG is a good transition fuel for a greener shipping industry, we look forward to jointly prepare the first bunkerings in Harlingen,” de Vries added.

The vessels were built in Vietnam and are currently on their way to Harlingen for final outfitting and commissioning. It is expected that the first crossings with the vessels will take place later this year, the LNG supplier to the marine and industrial markets in North West Europe said.
