VIDEO: The First 100% LNG Powered Barge on Maiden Voyage

The Greenstream, the world’s first 100% LNG powered barge has been delivering in delivering liquid fuels along the Rhine river in The Netherlands for several months.

This summer it expanded its range into Germany. In Spetember it was joined by its sister ship, the Greenrhine. Spark-ignition LNG engines can help to reduce noise by up to 50% compared to conventional heavy-duty diesel engines. Reduced engine noise can improve the well-being of the captain, as well as limiting disturbance to people living close to the river. LNG engines emit fewer local emissions than diesel engines, with the potential to benefit the local environment.
