Fjord Line has selected Liquiline for the development of a LNG ship bunkering terminal, which will be the first-of-its kind in Denmark.

Under the contract, Liquiline Europe will design, construct and commission the LNG ship bunkering terminal at the Port of Hirtshals, Denmark.

The LiquiStation Bulk ST2FF type-terminal will feature an onsite storage tank with a gross volume of 500m³ and a bunkering solution with a capacity of up to 400m³ of LNG an hour. It will allow Fjord Line to bunker its ships within two hours.

The terminal is slated to commence operations in the fourth quarter this year.

“Each of the vessels has a capacity to accommodate 1,500 passengers and 600 cars, trucks and cargo.”

Fjord Line director Gert Balling said: “Fjord Line is very much looking forward to have this LNG ship bunkering terminal from Liquiline established.

“It will enable us to bunker our ships quickly and give us the possibility to make use of this terminal commercially.”

Fjord Line’s one of the two LNG-fuelled cruise ferries, MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord, arrive at the Port of Hirtshals daily.

Powered by Rolls-Royce Marine gas engines, each of the vessels has a capacity to accommodate 1,500 passengers and 600 cars, trucks and cargo.

MS Stavangerfjord was put into operation in July 2013, while MS Bergensfjord started operations in March this year.
