Port of Gdynia Maritime Port Authority has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with PGNiG subsidiaries PGNiG Obrot Detaliczny and Gas-Trading S.A. which includes the construction of an LNG bunkering barge for deliveries to ships.

The project is to be implemented as part of the National Center for Research and Development program - INNOSHIP.

The letter of intent, signed on June 19, covers cooperation in several key areas. The companies are set to work together on the instructions for the refuelling of ships; a mobile filling point for LNG in Gdynia; and LNG bunkering using the ship-to-ship delivery method.

The signed document also includes the plan for Gas-Trading to submit an application, as part of the INNOSHIP program, for financial support.

According to the EU directive for alternative fuels, by the end of 2025 - at the latest - a sufficient number of LNG bunkering points should be created at seaports, allowing inland waterway vessels or LNG marine vessels to navigate the entire TEN-T core network.

In the case of Poland, these are to be Gdynia, Gdansk, Szczecin and Swinoujscie.

Adam Meller, President of the Port of Gdynia Maritime Port, commented: "We see a growing demand from ship owners, which is why we decided to use LNG fuel in the Port of Gdynia more widely. We want to build competitiveness in the international arena through the development of technology for bunkering this ecological fuel."

Marcin Szczudlo, Vice President of PGNiG Obrot Detaliczny, responsible for CNG and LNG, remarked: "In the coming years, LNG as an alternative marine fuel will gain in popularity. It is the only mature solution that can meet both current and future emission standards, with simultaneous economic viability.

"The development of the bunkering infrastructure is a key element for the further increase in the popularity of LNG, which is why we decided to sign a letter of intent with the Port of Gdynia."
