LNG Bunkering Focus Group Gains First China Port
Ningbo-Zhousan Port, the world’s fourth largest by throughput, has been named as the first Chinese port to join the Singapore-led LNG bunkering focus group formed by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), Antwerp Port Authority, Port of Rotterdam and Port of Zeebrugge in 2014. The port partnership also welcomed Marseille Fos Port, France's main trade seaport, and Vancouver Port, the largest in Canada. Through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in 2016, the members of the focus group have committed to working together to deepen cooperation and information sharing in relation to LNG bunkering. They will also develop a network of LNG bunker-ready ports across the East and West and Trans-Pacific trade. Other partners in the focus group are the LNG-bunker ready Port of Jacksonville in the US, the Norwegian Maritime Authority, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in Japan and Ulsan Port Authority in Korea. Also in Ningbo, the MPA held the third Port Authorities’ Roundtable, where ports discussed enhancing cybersecurity responses, building sustainable ports as well as integrating port resources to better face industry challenges. https://www.porttechnology.org/news/lng_bunkering_focus_group_gains_first_china_port
