Molgas completes its first German LNG bunkering op

European small-scale LNG player Molgas joined forces with Norwegian shipping firm UECC to complete its first LNG bunkering operation in Germany.

The group’s inaugural truck-to-ship bunkering operation took place on March 17 at the port of Cuxhaven in Germany.

During the operation, UECC’s LNG-powered hybrid PCTC, Auto Achieve, received 100 metric tons of LNG by multiple trucks, Molgas said in an emailed statement.

Back in 2022, the Norway-based joint venture consisting of NYK and Wallenius Lines took delivery of this LNG-powered vessel from China’s China’s Jiangnan Shipyard.

Besides LNG propulsion, it features a battery pack.

With this operation, UECC further expands its LNG bunkering network.

Last year, the European shortsea ro-ro carrier joined forces with Spanish energy firm Repsol to complete its first LNG bunkering operation in the Mediterranean.

On the other hand, Molgas continues to expand its LNG bunkering business after it recently completed its first operations in Belgium.

Prior to Belgium, the Madrid-based group, owned by French private equity firm InfraVia Capital Partners, wrapped up its first LNG bunkering operation in France.

Molgas also bought a 45 percent stake in Dutch LNG supplier Titan. This deal includes further follow-on rights from Molgas.
