Transition to a Multi-Fuel Port

Antwerp is the fifth-largest bunkering port in the world. It therefore has an important role to play in the transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy for shipping.

Our vision on the Multi Fuel Port

LNG is just the start. Port of Antwerp is fully engaged to also integrate methanol, hydrogen and electric power in its bunker market by 2025.

  • Including methanol, hydrogen gas and electrical energy in the bunkering market
  • Further expanding LNG bunkering (at the moment some 750 tonnes of LNG is bunkered annually in the port of Antwerp)
  • Developing conventional bunkering into a fully fledged port service in its own right, with the introduction of a high-quality licensing system and a digitisation path.
