EU-Financed Nordic LNG Bunkering Project Gets Underway
The Port of Frederikshavn, Kosan Crisplant A/S (Kosan Crisplant), and Stena Line in an emailed press release announced that they have officially launched the European Union (EU)-financed Nordic Maritime Hub project, which includes the establishment of a bunkering facility for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the port area. "At Kosan Crisplant we see this project as the door way to a big potential market for LNG in the Baltic Sea area," said Bo Larsen, Commercial Director for Kosan Crisplant. "The bunkering facility is therefore also just the first step in our broader vision, in that we already have signed an agreement with another project consortium to establish a production facility for LNG and LBG (liquefied biogas) in Frederikshavn. Nordic Maritime Hub is thus essential for the development of the market for alternative fuels, not just in Denmark, but in the entire Baltic Sea area." http://shipandbunker.com/news/emea/962271-eu-financed-nordic-lng-bunkering-project-gets-underwayUpload News
