Using a special process, the easily transportable and CO2-neutral liquid methane is produced from biogas. In combination with a drive system developed by CM Fluids, it is possible to operate buses in public transport economically and without CO2 emissions.
Shipping currently represents around 3% of total global emissions. That contribution could change significantly as other sectors switch to renewables if the shipping fuel mix remains unchanged.
The capacities of the station, which will allow more efficient entry into the small-scale regional LNG market, is reserved for a strategic partner for five years.
The terminal will also feature a bunkering solution enabling vessels to bunker LNG and other methane-based fuels in the port of Oxelösund directly from the terminal.
The vessel was ordered by the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).
With operations scheduled to start in the second half of 2020, the project includes infrastructure for the supply of natural gas and LNG to generate electricity, in addition to meeting the demands of industries, commerce, LNG stations and households.
