 Shipping company Nor Lines has allocated its two LNG-powered multipurpose vessels to a biweekly liner service from the SCA terminal in Rotterdam to the Norwegian coast.

 
Titan LNG, the service supplier of liquefied natural gas, will be supplying the chilled fuel to two Nor Lines' vessels - The MV Kvitnos and the MV Kvitbjørn.
 
The ships are bunkering, like the Wes Amelie, with Titan LNG at the City Terminal in the Prins Willem Alexander harbour (port number 2790). The LNG is delivered to the vessels by trucks. 
 
The Port of Rotterdam and Titan LNG have set up the site temporarily to bunker LNG to sea-going vessels until there are sufficient LNG bunker barges available.
 
Nor lines is a fully owned subsidiary of the shipping company Samskip. The fourteen-day shipping service runs through fourteen Norwegian ports such as Trondheim, Tromsø and Bergen. 
 
The MV Kvitnos and MV Kvitbjørn have a capacity of 1500 Lane ‘RoRo’ meters; 122 TEU containers, 1500 tons of refrigerated hold and a heavy load crane with 80 tons lift capacity.
