Cryonorm breaks ground on inland LNG bunker spot

Thursday, 05 November 2015

Cryonorm Systems in January received the order from Rotra for a turn-key supply of a LNG fuelling station for trucks and ships and official opening is planned for mid-December 2015.

The LNG station will have two LNG dispensers, one for trucks and one for inland waterway vessels.

An LNG bunkering point for these vessels will be installed on the quay and connected with vacuum insulated piping.

Rotra is building its own inland terminal nearby targeting the increase in inland navigation trans-shipment.

Container Terminal Doesburg will offer barge container transport as an cheap altenrative to road transport, and is expected to barge the equivalent of 200 truck transports per week.

Jos Glorie, business development director at Cryonorm Systems, said, "This is the first time that an LNG fuelling station will be extended with LNG fuel bunkering for inland waterway vessels.

“Again, Cryonorm is one the forefront of new development and we are proud that Rotra awarded the order to us.”
