The IAPH Clean Marine Fuels (CMF) working group has compiled, completed and published its LNG Ready Terminal guidance tool. It details procedures and operational preparedness actions of terminals to assure a safe handling of LNG-fuelled vessels, including a safe ship-to-ship bunkering of LNG-fuelled vessels alongside the terminal – September 3, 2020 It is the latest in a series of tools designed by IAPH CMF member
experts to equip port authorities with the necessary instruments to ensure safe bunkering of LNG in response to the increasing uptake of LNG-fuelled newbuild and retrofitted vessels calling at their ports. This is thanks to the work of the CMF working group participants of thirteen member ports. Port of Rotterdam’s Cees Boon, lead on the LNG Ready Terminal tool, offered his thanks to the cooperation with the terminal operators and commented: “This sought-after tool is now available for ports to use and completes the IAPH CMF suite of tools for LNG bunkering”. The group will now be focusing on applying relevant knowhow to other upcoming clean marine fuels.
