ESPO has published an interview with the Port of Zeebruggee on its website referring to its investment on LNG bunkering. Also, the port authority outlines the workings of the port, and its importance as a cargo handling facility, particularly automobiles, as well as its growing value as a passenger port.
Regarding the new sulphur regulation effective from January 2015, port authority states that shipping lines are now using different techniques such as low sulphur bunkering fuel and scrubbers and that the Port is also ”ready to offer LNG as bunkering fuel in the future”
”Last year the European Commission released its energy security strategy, in which it developed a set of short- and long-term measures to ensure a stable and abundant supply of energy for European citizens and the economy. The Port of Zeebrugge fulfils its role as an important gas hub in North Western Europe at our LNG terminal situated in the outer port LNG tankers can (un)load LNG at two jetties. Additionally LNG from Norway is arriving in Zeebrugge through a pipeline. Another pipeline is linking the continent with the UK. The port has been a notable gas hub for over 25 years and is aiming to maintain its leading role in the future evolution of LNG bunkering.”
The port has also a tradition in implementing environmental friendly alternative energies such as cold ironing/on shore electricity, windmills, solar panels.
