Linde and Hamburg to Investigate Providing LNG Bunkering
February 14, 2012

Linde and the German port have signed an agreement to examine offering LNG fuel for ships.

Gas technology company Linde AG and the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) have signed an agreement to advance the use of LNG-fuel in the Port of Hamburg, Linde announced on Feb. 10. According to Linde, the agreement will center on a feasibility study into whether or not the usage of LNG-fuel for ships and trucks is economically viable in Hamburg. Based on the studies findings, HPA will initiate infrastructure projects such as LNG-bunkering stations and terminals. Results of the study are expected in mid-2012.

According to HPA chairman Jens Meier, “Our aim is to develop sustainable long-term solutions that take account of the economic framework conditions and place more emphasis on green technologies at the same time." The announcement also noted that HPA is currently involved in two studies into LNG-fuel being conducted by classification society Germanischer Lloyd.
