Helsinki expands LNG truck refuelling

Authorities at the port of Helsinki in Finland have expanded LNG bunkering capabilities with the launch of new truck-to-ship operations at the Hanasaari terminal. First bunkering operations were carried out by fuel supplier Eesti Gaas with the bulk carriers Viikki and Haaga refuelled in cooperation with operator ESL Shipping. “LNG will replace the diesel fuel used so far as a marine fuel, as a result of which we will have cleaner air and the Baltic Sea… In addition to new passenger ships, new cargo ships are also increasingly switching to LNG technology,” Kalev Reiljan, member of the management board at Eesti Gaas, said. Eesti Gaas is 67% owned by investment company Infortar and includes subsidiaries AS EG Ehitus, which designs and builds gas networks, and distribution service provider AS Gaasivõrgud.


Gothenburg plans liquefied CO2 fuel

A joint venture partnership in Gothenburg, Sweden, is preparing new infrastructure to develop the world’s first liquefied carbon dioxide bunkering technology. The proposed solution will use gas received from carbon capture and storage technology and could compliment LNG as a fuel source at the port as part of an energy transition that is driving the uptake of gas a replacement transport fuel. The CinfraCap project is a joint venture between Göteborg Energi, Nordion Energi, Preem, St1, Renova, and Gothenburg Port Authority. “We must speed up the process if we are to achieve our climate goals and collaboration is the best way forward. We expect to be able to transport two million tonnes of captured carbon dioxide per year from our quayside facility and to do so we must have an efficient infrastructure,” said Elvir Dzanic, Gothenburg Port Authority chief executive and one of the parties involved in the joint CinfraCap infrastructure project.
