Bunkering solutions

Shipping with a green conscience

Bunkering with liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied biogas (LBG) is the ideal shortcut to a more sustainable shipping sector – and we can help you get there.

Rapid growth in number of LNG-fuelled ships

We made a short film that shows just how little space, and how little time, it takes to achieve a fast and efficient LNG bunkering solution. It is the bunkering equivalent of a Formula 1 pit stop!

Design based on our customers’ needs

We take pride in being able to design, produce and deliver bunkering solutions that are tailored to the situation our customers face. So no matter your location or environment, we will work together with you to arrive at a solution that matches your requirements perfectly – whether that is a fixed installation, a mobile bunkering adapter or something new entirely.

Leave the dirty work to us

Our LNG and LBG bunkering solutions come as turnkey projects where we take care of everything, including civil works, installation, talking to local authorities and securing permits. As part of MAKEEN Energy’s world-spanning network, we can offer after-sales service packages and facility management – letting you focus on the core part of your business with minimal worries about equipment maintenance and uptime.

Carbon neutral bunkering with LBG

LNG and LBG both consist of methane. The difference is that the gas used to produce the former is extracted from underground deposits, while the latter comes from organic material (such as livestock manure) that is already part of the planet’s carbon circulation. This makes LBG a 100% carbon neutral fuel with the same great qualities as LNG. All our bunkering solutions are equally compatible with both LNG and LBG.

Bunkering without emissions

LNG and LBG are composed primarily of methane, one of the most potent greenhouse gases. This means that even minor leaks significantly reduce the environmental benefits of switching to LNG or LBG. We design our bunkering solutions as a closed circuit, which means that any gas left in the pipes after bunkering returns to the tank instead of leaking into the atmosphere.
