For the first time, Baleària carried out an LNG Multi-Truck-To-Ship (MTTS) bunkering, at a speed almost six times higher than the usual average.
Three tank trucks operated simultaneously to supply LNG to ropax Marie Curie, which started to operate for the joint Baleària and Fred.Olsen Express service on the Huelva – Canary route. The operation was done in the Port of Huelva.
The manufacturer of gas storage and transport systems CMC Cerezuela has developed a system that prevents flow losses and allows a high supply speed.
The peak bunkering speed was 2,800 l / min (168 m3 / h). The goal is to reach 3,000 l / min (180 m3 / h).
