The Flexbox is a 30 ft container with a 14 m3 LNG tank and an ambient air vaporiser that converts LNG into normal natural gas. It offers a plug and play solution, and will supply 1.25 GWh/yr of gas to Eikelenboom Cleaning Amsterdam – a Dutch tank cleaning and food transport specialist, with locations across the Netherlands and Belgium – for the production of steam. The company’s location in the port of Amsterdam does not have access to the local gas grid and has, until now, relied on heating oil.
Ronald van Selm, Operations Director, Titan LNG, said: “We developed the Flexbox to serve customers with a relatively small gas use and for the mobile gas market. It’s a valuable addition to our product portfolio, providing a plug and play solution that enables easy access to clean and affordable natural gas.”
Koen Overtoom, Interim CEO, Port of Amsterdam, added: “Eikelenboom Cleaning Amsterdam and Titan LNG have achieved an important milestone in the development of a cleaner environment in our port. As LNG becomes an increasingly viable solution for both industrial and marine applications, it will play a key role in improving air quality in the port of Amsterdam. We are pleased to be able to support Titan LNG as it continues to innovate in this area with both the Flexbox and its recently launched LNG bunkering pontoon, the Flex-Fueler, which will provide LNG to LNG-powered ships.”
