“Smart Ports and cleaner energy – LNG Bunkering technologies and Distribution of LNG for Inland Waterways” is a title of the seminar regarding Norway – Poland partnership in Small Scale LNG solutions to be organized during the 19th BALTEXPO Exhibition and Conferences in Gdansk, on 11th – 12th September 2017.
Europe challenges and possibilities using LNG
The EU has put increased focus on cleaner energy on which LNG will be a part of the energy mix in the future. Environmentally issues require reduced use of coal driven powerplant and for the shipping industry the ECA zone in the Baltic Sea and North Sea / English Channel requires alternatives to Heavy fuel oil and diesel oil for reduction of NOx and Sox.
Local pollution is an increasing concern in many large cities including NOx, Sox and particle matters. This is supported by the EU LNG Strategy and implementation of import terminals and bunkering stations in ports and on the main road transport routs.
LNG will be a natural choice for fuelling the power plants in Europe and bunkering of ships operation the region.
For 50 years, Norway has been a trusted partner on the global energy market, both in terms of oil, gas and renewables. In recent decades, Norway’s export of LNG from the Norwegian continental shelf has played an increasing role as a global source of energy. Norway’s competitiveness in LNG trade as well as Norway’s well-documented expertise in the LNG sector bodes well for a closer partnership on energy between Norway and Poland.
Norwegian companies cover the complete LNG Value Chain from sourcing of LNG, Import terminals and specially the Small-Scale distribution and use of LNG over the last 15-20 years.
The Seminar “Smart Ports and cleaner energy – LNG Bunkering technologies and Distribution of LNG for Inland Waterways”.
The half day seminar will present the experience, systems and services from the Norwegian LNG Industry and will discuss the possible collaboration with Polish and European partners in implementation of Small- Scale LNG infrastructure solutions for a more environmentally friendly energy society.
Please, feel invited to visit representatives from the Norwegian LNG Cluster at our booth at BALTEXPO Exhibition.
