Belgium| Zeebrugge LNG terminal to build 4 additional truck loading bays also on bio-LNG

21 May, 2021

A total of 4 additional LNG truck loading bays will be built at the Zeebrugge LNG. Carbon-neutral bio-LNG will become an option as well.

Since last year, the Zeebrugge LNG terminal is the first in Europe to be officially certified to make bio-LNG available. A market consultation will be held this summer with a view to establish a regulated bio-LNG service.

With the demand for LNG as low emission fuel soaring, the existing truck loading bays at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal are gradually being used at their maximum capacity. While the number of truck loadings in 2017 was still around 1,450. The utilisation rate for this year is estimated to rise towards 6,000 loadings, approaching the maximum capacity of 8,000.

The 4 new truck loading bays are scheduled to become available in 2024.
