Liquiline says it has entered into a contract with Fjord Line to design, construct and commission an LNG ship bunkering terminal for Fjord Line AS at the Port of Hirtshals, Denmark.

The terminal will be constructed at the Port of Hirtshals, where Fjord Line operates a daily service with one of its two LNG-fuelled cruise ferries MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord. This will be the first LNG ship bunkering terminal in Denmark.

The ship bunkering terminal will be of Liquiline-design, a LiquiStation® Bulk ST2FF type. The terminal will have an on-site storage tank with a gross volume of 500m3 and a bunkering solution having a bunkering capacity of upto 400m3 of LNG per hour. This design will enable Fjord Line to bunker its ships within two hours, which is the time that the cruise ferries are docked to the port. The ship bunkering terminal is expected to be operational in Q42014.

The two cruise ferries are trading between Norway and Denmark. They each have a capacity of 1,500 passengers and 600 cars, trucks and cargo. They are fitted with Rolls-Royce Marine gas engines. MS Stavangerfjord was commissioned and set in operation in July 2013. MS Bergensfjord was commissioned and set in operation in March 2014.

Dag Lilletvedt, CEO of Liquiline Group commented: "We are very pleased with this agreement with Fjord Line, since it is based on our new LNG ship bunkering terminal design. In Fjord Line we get a strong and innovative industrial partner, being in the forefront of using LNG as bunker fuel in their new cruise ferries".

Gert Balling, Director of Fjord Line, stated that "Fjord Line is very much looking forward to have this LNG ship bunkering terminal from Liquiline established. It will enable us to bunker our ships quickly and give us the possibility to make use of this terminal commercially".
