First LNG vehicles in use – Infrastructure project by duisport, RWE and Uni
The first vehicles that have been retrofitted for the environmentally-friendly liquefied natural gas (LNG) are now in operation in the Port of Duisburg. They consist of a reach stacker and a terminal tractor in use at logport III in Duisburg-Hohenbudberg. The vehicles are filled with a mobile LNG fueling system.
The retrofitting of the vehicles forms a part of a joint research project undertaken by duisport, RWE Supply & Trading and Universität Duisburg-Essen, which is designed to increase the use of LNG as a replacement for diesel in the Port of Duisburg. Because of its trend-setting innovative potential, this LNG infrastructure project is also supported by the European Fund for Regional Development in the amount of EUR 740,000.
“We will consistently pursue the expansion of the LNG infrastructure in the Port of Duisburg. With this initiative, we can make an important contribution to environmental policy,” says duisport's Chief Executive Officer Erich Staake.
