LNG as fuel

Due to its low emission values LNG (liquified natural gas) is estimated to become the marine fuel of the future:

The ecological quality of the Port Feeder Barge concept can further be improved by using LNG as fuel. All disadvantages normally connected with LNG as marine fuel do not apply for the Port Feeder Barge:

  • The Port Feeder Barge does not rely on a network of bunker stations as the vessel keeps staying in one port. At the first stage the vessel could even be refuelled by LNG trucks.
  • As all containers are stowed on the weather deck there is sufficient space below the main deck to accommodate the voluminous LNG tanks. Contrary to other type of ships the Port Feeder Barge does not suffer from any loss of cargo space connected with LNG as fuel.
