Port of Rotterdam to study clean fuel bunkering station in Dordrecht

October 17, 2017 |

In the Netherlands, the Port of Rotterdam wants to develop a new multifuel bunker station for the refuelling of biodiesel, LNG and other cleaner fuels. Krabbegors/Duivelseiland at Dordrecht Inland Seaport has been designated as the location for this bunker station. Port of Rotterdam and PitPoint.LNG signed a letter of intent to jointly further investigate the development of such a multifuel bunker station.

Dordrecht Inland Seaport is the most inland seaport in the Netherlands. It forms the meeting point of the shipping lanes for the cities of Amsterdam – Rotterdam – Antwerp, and the main shipping route into Germany: the ideal location for a bunker station of this type.

Whether it’s hydrogen, electric, biodiesel or LNG/CNG, a central aspect of the investigation is the requirement that all fuels supplied by the multifuel bunker station should produce fewer harmful emissions than traditional fuels. This includes fuel for ships, trucks and/or commercial vehicles with the aim of working together to achieve cleaner air and a better living environment.
