LNG bunkering facility earmarked for Belgian port

The Port of Antwerp in Flanders, Belgium.

Belgium-based natural gas transmission system company, Fluxys, has announced plans to build a permanent LNG bunkering facility at the Port of Antwerp.

The operator has acquired a quay concession at the port and aims to complete the facility by the end of 2019 in a bid to make liquefied natural gas (LNG) available as an alternative fuel for ships and barges as part of Antwerp Port Authority's key initiatives to make the port's activities more sustainable.

G&V Energy Group is working with Fluxys to build the infrastructure needed for barges and smaller seagoing ships.
