NYK demonstrates truck-to-ship LNG bunkering in Japan

The companies participating “will utilize the experience gained from this operation to accelerate commercialization.”

   NYK said Wednesday it was part of the successful demonstration of truck-to-ship liquefied natural gas bunkering at the Port of Kitakyushu.
   Partnering with NYK for the demonstration were Kyushu Electric Power Co. Inc., Saibu Gas Co. Ltd. and The Chugoku Electric Power Co. Inc.
   NYK said the operation was the first LNG bunkering in the Setouchi and Kyushu areas of western Japan and “advances the four companies’ discussions on the commercialization of a new business in the area.”
   The LNG fuel was loaded onto a tank truck at the Hibiki LNG terminal in Kitakyushu, trucked to a pier in the Asano district and then supplied to the LNG-fueled tugboat Sakigake using the truck-to-ship method.
   “Since August 2018, the four companies have been in joint discussions on the commercialization of LNG bunkering, and this demonstration validates the feasibility of LNG bunkering in the area,” NYK said. “Going forward, the four companies will utilize the experience gained from this operation to accelerate commercialization.”
