LNG bunkering operation at the Port of Marseille Fos
The first ship-to-containership LNG bunkering operation in the Port of Marseille Fos was completed this year alongside the Eurofos container terminal, while the containership carried out cargo operations simultaneously. Marseille is the first LNG bunkering hub in France.
As a next step in the development of lower-carbon LNG for maritime transport, TotalEnergies, CMA CGM, Elengy and EveRé have announced a joint study to create France’s first production unit for liquefied biomethane (BioLNG) at Port of Marseille Fos. BioLNG will be produced by converting the biodegradable part of household waste from Marseille Provence region.
