Province of North-Holland awards €500,000 for LNG bunkering project
Titan LNG has been given the award and a subsidy of € 500.000 by the Province of North-Holland to support the construction of its LNG bunkering pontoon: the Titan LNG Flex-Fueler. The Flex-Fueler project was selected under the Province’s ‘Clean Harbor Program’ and was chosen for the impact Titan LNG will have in reducing harmful emissions from large, highly polluting, ships operating in the region.Jaap Bond, Representative from the province of North-Holland added: “I am very pleased that the subsidy for the development of more sustainable Seaports is given to very diverse projects. The Flex-Fueler from Titan LNG appeals to me because of the innovative nature of the bunkering pontoon, the first of its kind in the world. In the port of Amsterdam, the Flex-Fueler will accelerate the transition to LNG as a cleaner marine fuel. The development of the Flex-Fueler has already drawn interest from other European ports.”The cost for building and operating the Flex-Fueler are dramatically lower then LNG bunker barges or LNG bunker ships but the functionality of the LNG bunkering pontoon combined with a push boat resembles the full functionality of LNG bunker ships.
