Furetank's newbuild chemical tanker, the Fure Vinga, has been bunkered in Amsterdam for the first time, LNG bunker supplier Titan LNG reports.

The 150-metre-long vessel recently arrived in the Netherlands during its maiden voyage. And during its stay, the ship was supplied with LNG in an operation involving four delivery trucks at Amsterdam's Groene Kade (Green Quay).

According to Titan, the regular supply of LNG to ships has become "a routine operation for us", and the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel is now "beyond the tipping point".

"We've been supporting the commissioning of LNG fuelled vessels frequently and are servicing more and more vessels," the Dutch supplier added.

Meanwhile, the construction of Titan's - and Europe's - first LNG bunkering pontoon, the FlexFueler, is said to be on schedule. The vessel is due to become operational by the end of this year.

Titan has also already signed a long-term rental agreement with Amsterdam Port Authority for the Dutch port to be the FlexFueler's home location.

Furthermore, Titan says it is working on increasing the efficiency of truck-to-ship operations together with haulers such as Nijman/Zeetank. A higher number of LNG trailers means that the company will be able to deliver larger volumes.

"We are looking forward to the second half of this year and feel that we are in a good position to serve our customers and grow our market share as an independent supplier," Titan said.

As previously reported, the Fure Vinga was bunkered in Europe for the first time on May 19 - at the Spanish port of Cartagena. The delivery was performed by Germany's Nauticor and Madrid-headquartered Gas Natural Fenosa, who teamed up to supply 120 tonnes of the fuel in a truck-to-ship operation involving six tank trailers.
