TITAN GAINS EU FUNDS FOR (BIO)-LNG SUPPLY CHAIN

Tuesday, July 21, 2020 

Gas fuel supplier Titan LNG has been granted Ä11m funding from the EUís Connecting Europe Facility (CEF); the EUís grant scheme supporting transport infrastructure, connectivity and the switch to greener fuels for transport.

Titan's Bio2Bunker project aims to develop and expand a bio-LNG (BLNG) bunkering supply chain by introducing three bunker barges in Zeebrugge, Rotterdam, and Lübeck. The bunker barges in Belgium and Germany will be similar to two existing FlexFuelers with demonstrated operational advantages. For the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region a mothership, the Titan Hyperion, will be constructed to resupply the FlexFuelers.

The company says that customers in the shipping sector are facing a choice for the future: run on MGO, HFO with scrubbers, or go for (bio)LNG, which it believes to be the only proven alternative fuel that is scalable right now. Titan LNG believes that LNG-fuelled ships are future proof. LNG combined with BLNG and later Synthetic Liquefied Gas (SLG), made by combining green hydrogen and CO2, can offer a credible and cost competitive path to decarbonisation while improving local air quality.
