LNG infrastructure for the Port of Duisburg
Published: January 16, 2017
RWE Supply & Trading and Duisport are building LNG infrastructure at the Port of Duisburg. The objective is to develop an integrated and sustainable logistics concept for the procurement, storage, distribution and use of LNG, and to implement the concept at the Port of Duisburg. A land parcel for the LNG fuel station has already been designated.
The first step consists of the planned installation of a mobile fueling station, which can be relocated quickly and easily if required. This facility will be used to supply LNG to port vehicles (reachstackers and terminal tractors) as well as the trucks of local freight forwarders during the initial phase. The vehicles are retrofitted for LNG and extensively tested in regular operations. Investments for this first step amount approximately EUR 500,000.
