Gothenburg gas bunkering helps clean shipping

Man Cryo is to equip Gothenburg's purpose-built gas bunkering facility Man Cryo is to equip Gothenburg's purpose-built gas bunkering facility

Ship operators will have another North Sea LNG option from 2018 after Swedegas signed a contract with MAN Cryo to equip a bunkering facility in Gothenburg.

The facility will enable vessels to bunker from trucks or containers while simultaneously loading and unloading cargo at two jetties – eliminating the need for a separate refuelling stop. The solution will be open for multiple gas suppliers.

Mikael Adler, managing director, MAN Diesel & Turbo Sweden, said: “We strive to bring robust, smart and flexible solutions to the market, and this strategic project is an excellent example of that. Our strategy to offer LNG solutions to the marine market dovetails perfectly with the general development towards cleaner ship propulsion.”

Sulphur compliance

The facility will comprise a discharge station for LNG trailers or containers, feeding pumps, vacuum-insulated piping and bunkering equipment to facilitate efficient operations. It will enable ships to satisfy the 2020 sulphur directive and has been designated by the EU as a priority infrastructure project.

MAN Cryo will oversee engineering, procurement and construction from MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Gothenburg office. The facility will be operated and managed by Swedegas for the Port of Gothenburg.
