First LNG delivery from LIQUIND Marine to the dredger “Scheldt River” in Brunsbüttel
Hamburg, September 16th, 2020: LIQUIND Marine has successfully carried out the first LNG refuelling of a ship in Germany. On behalf of the Finnish gas supply company GASUM, LIQUIND Marine supplied four trucks with a total cargo of 72 tons LNG to the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) „Scheldt River“. The truck-to-ship bunkering operation was conducted using equipment for the parallel unloading of the trucks. As a result, the bunkering operation was done in less than six hours.
Christian Schneider, Managing Director of LIQUIND Marine, is pleased: “With the successful implementation of the first ship bunkering, we and our partners have shown that the security of supply for LNG users is not only ensured at our land-based supply stations. In addition, our customers can rely on an efficient and cost-effective supply infrastructure for alternative fuel in various European ports.”
LIQUIND Marine is a subsidiary of the Berlin LNG infrastructure provider LIQUIND 24/7. The company is leading in the supply of LNG to trucks in Germany with eight fueling stations in operation and another 15 under preparation. Capitalising on the experience of developing infrastructure for alternative fuels in the last years, the Berlin-based company further expands its market position.
For the Hamburg based subsidiary LIQUIND Marine, the company recruited Jan Schubert as Head of Sales & Marketing. He took over the newly created position and thereby returns to his old place of work after being away for nearly five years.
“I am looking forward to working with the team of LIQUIND again and being able to ensure the supply of LNG for marine customers in the North Sea and Baltic Sea after the team has already done a fantastic job in the road segment.“
Building on his experience in setting up LNG supply infrastructure for marine customers in Europe and the deployment of the world’s largest LNG bunker ship “Kairos” in the North Sea and Baltic Sea, Schubert sees substantial potential for the further development of the necessary infrastructure. This creates further synergies with other front runners in the LNG industry. “The cooperation with GASUM perfectly fits our plans for the future,” point out Christian Schneider and Jan Schubert.
Parallel to the development of the infrastructure, LIQUIND Marine is focusing on improving its emission reduction potential in gas-powered ships by providing Liquefied Bio Gas (LBG) for shipping.
