Rotterdam offers LNG bunkering
As from 1 July, inland shippers have been officially able to bunker LNG in the Seinehaven in Rotterdam Botlek. The municipality of Rotterdam amended the port management regulations to allow this. On Thursday afternoon (27 June), port alderman Jeannette Baljeu welcomed clients who had come to witness the inland vessel "Greenstream" bunkering the natural gas in the Seinehaven. Rotterdam is the first port in Europe where inland shipping can officially bunker LNG. The port authority expects the location of the first LNG bunker station in the port to be announced this year. Until its opening, inland shippers can bunker the gas in the Seinehaven.
