Fredrikstad can provide LNG
Friday, December 14, 2018 - 13:08 by ce-press
Northern Europe’s best preserved fortress town of Fredrikstad is just south of Oslo and
situated on the Baltic and Norwegian routes.
The port has the ability to deliver 1,000m3/hour LNG via bunker barge given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice. Renate Jacobsen, sales manager Fredrikstad Cruise Port, commented: “We have just started the marketing for LNG delivery to the cruiseliners and are awaiting results/feedback for this.”
Next year the port is expecting six calls including Seabourn for the first time. Seabourn Ovation will call 2019 and again in 2020. There are four quays with the possibility of accommodating ships up to 300m in length.
The port has recently decided to restrict numbers to 4,000 passengers and two ships a day. The restrictions are mainly due to shore excursion availability and is not driven by residents or emissions concerns, or overcrowding, explained Jacobsen.
