With the collaboration of Oiltanking Amsterdam, Furetank Chartering and Titan LNG companies, the cargo operation was performed on the FlexFueler001 ship Ramelia, while LNG was supplied.

LNG refueling was allowed when the Ramelia ship was discharged in Amsterdam Port. Thanks to this important step, since the ship receiving the fuel does not have to be shifted to a predetermined LNG supply point, there is no negative situation regarding speed and operation affecting the current circulation of the port.

Oiltanking Amsterdam Operations Manager Daan van Roijen said, “We are proud to facilitate LNG supply at our Oiltanking facility. The delivery was made safely and efficiently by the Professional staff of Titan LNG and Furetank. LNG supply did not cause any delays and restrictions in the evacuation of the Ramelia tanker. ” said

Johan Kristensson of Furetank Chartering said, “The first simultaneous LNG supply in the Port of Amsterdam is a real advantage for the LNG preference as marine fuel. Refueling while the ship is shipping at the port has positive ethics on the local environment in terms of not only saving money and time, but also reducing emissions from the ship’s supply area and less crew’s working hours. In this context, we hope that more ports and terminals that can supply LNG will follow us. ” said

Titan LNG will continue to cooperate with other terminals in the ARA region to enable more simultaneous replenishment.
