The European Union’s TEN-T Programme will provide over €1 million towards a pilot construction of an LNG tank and bunker at the Port of Hirtshals in Denmark.
If the pilot is successful, a larger LNG bunker will be developed to supply both marine and road transport with LNG fuel.
As the first such initiative in Denmark, this project will develop a 200 t/500 m3 pilot LNG storage tank and bunkering facility, with the potential to develop it into a larger one of 3000 - 5000 m3. The new facilities will provide LNG for ships both within and outside the EU, as well as regional consumers including road transport.
The project's outcomes are expected to serve as best practice to other ports in northern Europe and encourage consumers to switch to LNG. It will also be the first step towards creating a robust LNG supply infrastructure in the region.
The project is to be completed by 30 June 2015.
