Ship owners and haulage companies as well as remote industry increasingly choose LNG as alternative low emission fuel. Their supply can now be sourced from the Dunkirk LNG terminal.

Following its commercial entry into service on 1 June, the newly commissioned truck loading bay at the Dunkirk LNG terminal offers a loading capacity of 3000 slots per year.

Using the service is straightforward:

Customers can book loading slots online 24/7.

After an online training, drivers can fully autonomously load LNG in just one hour and 30 minutes thanks to a flow rate of 50 m3 per hour.

Juan Vazquez, CEO of Dunkerque LNG, said: “This project has successfully come to fruition through our collaboration with the Port of Dunkirk, one of our main partners in the development of this new service. With a capacity of almost 2000 loading slots available between now and the end of the year, our first bay is ready to welcome customers.”
