Nijman/Zeetank present at the LNG Masterplan event

On Tuesday the 15th and Wednesday the 16th of December 2015, Nijman/Zeetank was one of the participants at the LNG Masterplan event. The project started three years ago with EU assistance (TEN/T Programme). The objective of this project is to introduce LNG as an alternative fuel for inland vessels in Europe. LNG has much lower emissions than the fuels currently used for inland vessels. A total of thirteen EU countries and more than fifty companies actively participated in this project.

 

The LNG Masterplan event took place in Rotterdam. During the event, the results of the project were announced. Numerous detailed plans are already in place and various initiatives are being elaborated in greater detail. Developments have been rapid primarily in the Netherlands and Belgium, which is partly because LNG terminals are located in both countries (Fluxys in Zeebrugge, and Gate in Rotterdam).

In these terminals, LNG is unloaded from seagoing vessels and then distributed from this site to the end users. Various countries are trialling the use of LNG in order to encourage lower emissions. The Port of Rotterdam gives seagoing vessels which bunker LNG in its port a discount of 10% on gross seaport dues.

 

During the event, Nijman/Zeetank actively demonstrated the bunkering of an inland vessel. Amid great interest, various employees of Nijman/Zeetank gave an explanation about the technical specifications of the Nijman/Zeetank LNG tank and the bunkering procedures.
