Spanish port looking at LNG bunkering

The Port Authority of Almeria has launched a feasibility study as it is looking to start supplying LNG to ferries using the truck-to-ship bunkering method.

The Spanish port authority said in a statement it awarded the contract to a local engineering firm.

Under the deal, the firm will provide technical assistance for the assessment and study of supplying LNG to ferries.

In addition to the study, preparation will involve modifying current manholes and firefighting facilities at the port.

The port authority said that by using LNG it aims to reduce emissions and achieve a “more sustainable port area”.

The authority manages both the Almeria and Carboneras ports.

It aims to launch the LNG bunkering service in summer 2021.
