Germany examines liquefied natural gas for port vehicles

January 4, 2017. German utility group RWE said it would work with port officials to create infrastructure to fuel vessels with cleaner-burning liquefied natural gas (LNG).

   RWE said it was committed to working alongside the Duisport group, the operator of the Port of Duisburg, to build the mobile fueling stations and other means to fuel port vehicles with the super-cooled form of natural gas.

   "The port of Duisburg provides excellent possibilities for the use of LNG," RWE's Andree Stracke said in a statement. "As the biggest inland port in the world it has a perfect connection to all traffic channels."

   A pilot phase involves mobile fueling stations and conversion of port vehicles to work on LNG. The German company said vehicles would be tested in daily operations under a combined first-step investment of around USD 520.000.
