Operations and major projects
The rapid refuelling service for LNG tankers will be ready by the end of the year. In the meantime, 8 pumps will be replaced before the installation of a new compressor. The purpose of this is to increase the current LNG refuelling capacity of a tanker from 4,000 m3/hour to 8,800 m3/hour.
LNG is used to fuel tankers. It emits no particles or sulphur oxide, very little nitrogen oxide, and much less CO2 than heavy fuel oil. LNG is increasingly being used in the maritime sector. That’s why Dunkerque LNG has pursued its goal of developing an LNG filling station at the LNG terminal.
Dunkerque LNG and its territory
Dunkerque LNG is aware that a visit on their site could inspire an interest in careers in the industry, but the sector is lacking in visibility. That’s why the company regularly organises tours of the LNG terminal and workshops in schools. Too often, students dismiss the industrial sector because they don’t know enough about it.
Alex Perales Josa has spent practically his entire career in the gas sector, first at Engie and GRT Gaz, before finally joining the sales team at Dunkerque LNG. He talked to us about his job and what keeps him interested.
