Rostock's first chemical tanker LNG bunkering

Furetank's Fure West was filled by Bomin Linde LNG with Liquefied Natural Gas in Rostock on February 2nd, marking the first such operation on a chemical tanker in this German Baltic seaport.

In total, four tank trucks were unloaded to bunker the vessel.

"The truck-to-ship bunkering process went smoothly thanks to the seamless coordination between the ship's crew and our Bomin Linde experts onshore. I am glad that we were able to bring the partnership agreement between our two companies to life just weeks after it was signed," Sonja Nesshoever, Director LNG Portfolio at Bomin Linde LNG, commented.

Lars Höglund, Furetank's Managing Director added, "We are happy that we are able to bunker LNG in an increasing number of ports, including Rostock. Jointly developing the LNG market is the basis for successfully establishing LNG as ship fuel. We are glad to have Bomin Linde LNG as our partner, with whom we will not only extend our truck-to-ship supply but also ship-to-ship bunkering."

"The bunkering of Fure West by the experienced German LNG supplier Bomin Linde LNG establishes Rostock as a prime location for the supply of alternative ship fuels. We are pleased to see that not only supply by truck, but also by a bunker vessel might be an option in the long-run," Jens Aurel Scharner, Rostock Port's Managing Director, concluded.
