Dutch liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplier Titan LNG, in cooperation with the Port of IJmuiden and OD IJmond, successfully completed the first bunkering of LNG to the Werkendam, Van Oord’s LNG-powered crane vessel, last week.

Commenting the latest news, Jippe van Eijnatten, director business development at Titan LNG, said: “This first for the Port of IJmuiden is another important step for LNG bunkering, the port is strategically located for bunkering activities and the operation today further acknowledges our strong track record in LNG bunkering.”

 “The permitting process was thorough and in good cooperation with OD IJmond and Port of IJmuiden.”

The Werkendam is fully powered by LNG, with gas oil as a back-up.

The installed tank capacity on the aft deck can store 35 m3 LNG on board.. In comparison with diesel, LNG emits 80% less particulate matter and 70% less nitrogen oxides.

According to Titan, a CO2 reduction of around 25% is also achieved.
