Overall LNG project

The North Europe LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) Infrastructure of Filling Stations and Deployment in ships - the overall project - consists of an infrastructure and a full scale pilot project.

The aim of the infrastructure project is to set up recommendations on the establishment of a maritime LNG infrastructure encompassing a “hard one” on filling stations and a “soft one” on regulation and industry standards, etc.

The recommendations must be relevant for central stakeholders as shipowners, ports, LNG providers, industry organizations, countries, EU and IMO, etc.

On July 2012 the work was finalized and it is documented in 5 reports listed under Papers and presentations. The Summary Report contains an executive summary and a summary of findings and recommendations.

The aim of the full scale pilot project is to modify the design of two new build vessels to an LNG propulsion system, a more environmentally friendly system.

The two new cruise ferries have Hirtshals as their base port and call at Langesund, Stavanger and Bergen in Norway.

Hereby the transport corridor connecting the West and Eastern part of Norway and the Continent through Jutland will be developed. Furthermore the western part of Sweden will be relived from truck transport.

The two ships will come into service 2013.

The shipowner is Fjord Line Danmark A/S.

The overall project combines a top down point of view seen from a facilitating LNG filling station infrastructure with a bottom up approach for international short sea shipping.

The overall project further aims at harvesting positive environmental and climate effects.
