Liquiline Europe AS has received a contract to design, construct and commission an LNG ship bunkering terminal for Fjord Line AS in Denmark.
The LNG ship bunkering terminal will be constructed at the Port of Hirtshals, where Fjord Line on a daily basis arrives with one of its two LNG-fuelled cruise ferries MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord. This will be the first LNG ship bunkering terminal in Denmark.
The LNG ship bunkering terminal will be a LiquiStation® Bulk™ ST2FF type. The terminal will have an on-site storage tank with a gross volume of 500 m3 and a bunkering capacity of upto 400 m3 of LNG per hour.
Fjord Line will be able to bunker its ships within two hours, which is the time that the cruise ferries are docked to the port. The LNG ship bunkering terminal is expected to be operational in Q4 2014.
Dag Lilletvedt, CEO of Liquiline Group, said: "We are very pleased with this agreement with Fjord Line, since it is based on our new LNG ship bunkering terminal design. In Fjord Line we get a strong and innovative industrial partner, being in the forefront of using LNG as bunker fuel in their new cruise ferries".
Gert Balling, Director of Fjord Line, added: "Fjord Line is very much looking forward to [having] this LNG ship bunkering terminal from Liquiline established. It will enable us to bunker our ships quickly and give us the possibility to make use of this terminal commercially".
