Port of Rotterdam embraces IAPH-backed LNG auditing tool


The Tokyo-based International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH) have recommended a tool for auditing LNG vessel owner-operators and bunker operators.
IAPH's newly-named Clean Marine Fuels Workgroup met in Le Havre recently to discuss use of the IAPH LNG bunkering audit tool already used to licence operations in the Port of Rotterdam.
Port of Rotterdam's Cees Boon showcases LNG bunkering audit tool developed by the IAPH Clean Marine Fuels Working Group for port authorities at the LNG Ship/Shore Conference in London.
"By 2020, our estimate is that we will have granted nine licences to LNG bunker providers to operate at the Port of Rotterdam; six of the licences are already for regular use in port LNG bunker operations to refuel LNG-powered cruise, cargo, tanker and container vessels," said Cees Boon, Senior Policy Advisor at the Harbourmaster Policy Department of the Port of Rotterdam.
Three licences will be for bunker vessels that will operate on the spot market," said Mr Boon. "By using best practice guidelines in the IAPH audit tool developed by ports for port authorities, licences to operate can be efficiently assessed and granted to professional LNG bunker operators looking to provide their services across several ports."
