In just a few months, for the first time, vessels will be able to bunker LNG at a permanent facility at the Port of Gothenburg.
Swedegas, which will own and operate the facility, and the Norwegian company Barents NaturGass, which can supply the LNG with ISO-containers from main European terminals, have entered into an agreement. The shipping sector can now purchase marine fuel complying with the tightening emissions regulations based on a one-stop-shop concept.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work at the largest port in the Nordic region and with the shipping companies that use the port. Gothenburg based shipping companies have been amongst the first to adopt LNG in Sweden. Several vessels have already been built and launched which are ready to run on LNG. We are keen to start our LNG supply services and meet the customer’s needs,” said Gudrun Rollefsen, CEO in Barents NaturGass.
