Titan LNG Conducts 1st LNG Bunkering in Port of IJmuiden

first_imgDutch LNG supplier Titan LNG has completed the first-ever LNG bunkering at the Port of IJmuiden, North Holland.Carried out in cooperation with the port and the OD IJmond on November 4, the operation included the first bunkering of LNG to the Werkendam, an LNG-powered crane vessel owned by Paans Van Oord.“This first for the Port of IJmuiden is another important step for LNG bunkering, the port is strategically located for bunkering activities and the operation today further acknowledges our strong track record in LNG bunkering,” Jippe van Eijnatten, director business development at Titan LNG, said.“The permitting process was thorough and in good cooperation with OD IJmond and Port of IJmuiden.”“Having LNG powered vessels work in our port area is great for the local emissions and of course they should be able to bunker as efficient as normal MGO, this LNG bunkering is a great step forward,” Margot Michielse of The Omgevingsdienst IJmond/Velsen commented.Titan LNG has delivered the first LNG bunkering in the port of IJmuiden to the vessel ‘Werkendam’, via truck-to-ship. #Anothermilestone. We thank #ODIJmond & #VanOord for their cooperation and support.#LNGBunkering #ODIJmond #Werkendam #VanOord https://t.co/J2PFLzKDMT pic.twitter.com/eK6G4EvLYn— Titan LNG (@TitanLNG) November 5, 2019The Werkendam is fully powered by LNG, with gas oil as a back-up. The installed tank capacity on the aft deck can store 35 cbm LNG on board. In comparison with diesel, LNG emits 80% less particulate matter and 70% less nitrogen oxides. A CO2 reduction of around 25% is also achieved.In July this year, Titan LNG also completed the world’s largest LNG bunkering to date involving Heerema Marine Contractors’ new semi-submersible crane vessel. The dual-fuel ship Sleipnir was supplied with LNG offshore Sumatra, South East Asia.last_img read more

Van Gaal targets City

first_imgLouis van Gaal set his sights on catching Manchester City after watching his team rip Tottenham apart with their best display of the season. “The performance was very good against a very good team so I am very pleased. “We played like a team and that is nice to see after a defeat to Arsenal (on Monday) “It’s a massively important game after a defeat against a competitor so I am very pleased with the players. “We have to go step by step and the next game is Liverpool. “Manchester United has not won too often the games in Liverpool.” Fellaini drove a low ball past Hugo Lloris to open the scoring and Carrick nodded in a second before Rooney rounded off the win in the 34th minute following a mistake by Nabil Bentaleb. Van Gaal thinks United are finally starting to tick after months of tinkering with selection and tactics. He said: “The first system was I played with three defenders, the second system was this. I played it against Man City, Chelsea and a third one. But we didn’t do this what we have done today. “It is a matter of time and process. Maybe now is the game that gives us a fantastic boost.” Spurs came into the match on the back of successive victories, but they were unable to muster any kind of challenge on Sunday. When asked whether it was Tottenham’s worst performance of the season, head coach Mauricio Pochettino said: “Maybe, yes.” “We made a lot of mistakes. We never find the way we need to play and damage Manchester United. “I think we made a lot of mistakes. This was the key.” Spurs were being tipped to sneak into the Champions League places, but now they are six points adrift and Pochettino is a concerned man. “I am worried about our performance,” the Argentinian said. “You can lose here, but our performance was poor. “We need to try and analyse and fix that. “I think a lot of times today we showed a very poor performance. “I don’t remember when was the last time we had a similar performance. We are all disappointed, not only me, all the team.” For eight months Van Gaal has been promising Manchester United fans everything would soon start to click into place and it finally did on Sunday as United beat Spurs 3-0. Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney found the net in a rampant first half display that had all the hallmarks of the Sir Alex Ferguson era at Old Trafford. United played with speed, width, aggression and destruction to record a win that puts them within two points of second-placed City, who lead Arsenal by one point. After losing at Burnley on Saturday, City have fallen further behind Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea and Manuel Pellegrini’s men are now in Van Gaal’s sights. When asked whether City had been dragged into the “rat race” – a term Van Gaal uses to describe the fight for the top four – the United boss said: “Of course, because Arsenal is one point behind and we are two points behind. “It is good for us and the fans and the media because you can write a lot of things down. “We have to go step by step. It is a rat race and we are now two points from the second position.” Van Gaal thinks the title is as good as gone. “It is too far away,” he said, mindful of the fact that United are eight points behind Chelsea having played one more game. But the United boss hopes the win over Spurs will inject confidence into his team, who have put in a series of unimaginative performances this season, much to the disappointment of their fans. “We have waited a long time for such a victory,” said Van Gaal, who faces Liverpool, Aston Villa, City, and Chelsea in the coming weeks.
