LNG Inland

With the development of inland LNG carriers with a length of 86 to 125 meters and a total capacity of 2.250 to 3.000 m³, VEKA is preparing inland shipping for the future. The LNG terminal in Zeebrugge (Belgium), and soon the GATE terminal at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam are until now the only LNG import facilities in Europe that are equipped to load Inland ships and coastal LNG carriers. We expect that a number of small scale LNG terminals and LNG bunker facilities will be constructed along the Rhine in the near future. LNG Inland carriers will be needed to service these terminals, and VEKA is ready to build such vessels.

VEKA will collaborate with Deen shipping in their newly announced “VEKA DEEN LNG” partnership to develop the small scale LNG market in Europe. This new partnership will be a big first step to facilitate the transport and bunkering of LNG via the major European inland waterways.
