A new LNG facility for vessel bunkering is being built at the Port of Gothenburg.
The new infrastructure by Swedegas is the first LNG facility in Gothenburg, making it possible for vessels to bunker LNG at the quayside while loading and unloading.
It will comprise a discharging station, a cryogenic pipeline and bunkering equipment, allows vessels to bunker LNG at the quayside while loading and unloading. According to the company, there has been widespread demand in the shipping sector for this type of solution, and the concept has been designed in consultation with key players on the market.
Johan Zettergren, Swedegas chief executive, says: 'This investment marks the starting point for the gradual expansion of the facility, eventually supplying the transport sector and Swedish industry with liquefied gas. Regardless of the section, it ultimately comes down to making the transition from oil-based products.'
The facility is expected to be fully operational in 2018.
