Titan launches ‘Bridge’ LNG truck loading facility in Zeebrugge

Titan LNG said it has commissioned a short-term truck loading facility in Belgium’s Port of Zeebrugge while the Dutch Gate terminal undergoes maintenance.

Project Bridge will accommodate LNG truck loadings as an interim solution during a 4-week period, Dutch supllier Titan said on Monday.

The Titan-chartered Green Zeebrugge is filling up trucks at the quay of the PSA terminal in Zeebrugge to serve bunkering customers in the ARA region, Zeebrugge, and surrounding areas.

Equipped with two loading bays, the solution was commissioned and developed by Titan’s in-house team, in collaboration with small-scale LNG market participants to trial the project’s operations.

Rijlaarsdam Tech, Titan’s project partner, operates the facility.

During normal operations, Dutch Gate terminal in Rotterdam loads some 600 trailers per month.

The Fluxys terminal in Zeebrugge cannot fill this demand for extra slots, meaning it would not have sufficient capacity to ensure the demand for the downstream market, according to Titan.

Bridge will process additional LNG coming to Zeebrugge starting from mid-July of this year. Titan expects the facility to complete up to 300 orders during its deployment.

Titan says the facility will load trucks daily during weekdays, while Green Zeebrugge will load LNG from the Fluxys terminal in Zeebrugge on Saturdays and Sundays to replenish the FlexFueler bunker barges in the ARA area.

Following the completion of Bridge at Zeebrugge, Titan LNG aims to deploy the same facility to other locations across the EU region.
