First industrial LNG installation in port of Amsterdam opened
The Titan LNG Flexbox will supply clean and affordable natural gas to Eikelenboom Cleaning Amsterdam, a Dutch tank cleaning and food transport specialist.
The first of its kind in north west Europe, the Flexbox is a 30ft container, which boasts a 14 m3 LNG tank and an ambient air vaporizer that converts the LNG into normal natural gas.
Commenting on the launch, Ronald van Selm, Operations Director, Titan LNG, said: “We developed the Flexbox to serve customers with a relatively small gas use and for the mobile gas market.”
With no access to the local gas-grid, Eikelenboom’s location in the port of Amsterdam has, until now, relied on the use of heating oil; a less environmentally-conscious solution.
Eikelenboom therefore sought a more sustainable solution for its operations by utilising the Titan LNG Flexbox. ■
