Bunkering LNG/LBG at the Port of Gothenburg
An initial step in making an energy hub a reality is for Swedegas to offer ships the opportunity to bunker not only liquified natural gas (LNG), but also liquified biogas (LBG) at the existing bunkering facility at the same time that they load and discharge at the quayside. Bunkering takes place at jetty 519 and 521 at the Energy Port at the port of Gothenburg.
The infrastructure contributes to reducing the climate impact of shipping, as gas liquefied natural gas / biogas can replace coal and oil-based fuels. Being able to offer this unique opportunity represents a major breakthrough, not only in facilitating the transition to LNG, but also in gradually increasing the proportion of renewable gas.
This film shows how the bunkering takes place.
The facility is part of a future expansion of a broader energy infrastructure solution at the Port of Gothenburg. With such a facility, in addition to shipping, heavy transport and industries that are not connected to the main grid could be provided with LNG / LBG. Then shipping, industries and heavy transport can switch from oil-based fuels to gas, which reduces the environmental impact. And the more biogas demanded by customers, the better it will be for the environment. In all sectors it will involve switching from oil-based products to gas in an effort to mitigate climate impact.LBG
