December 2016, the LNG carrier ‘Milaha Qatar’ moored for the first time at the new 2nd jetty at the Fluxys LNG Terminal
in Zeebrugge. The tugs of KOTUG SMIT played a crucial role
in this pilot project. The first unloading of a conventional LNG carrier on the new quay 616 was
successfully completed. The approach, the unloading and the departure of the
ship went very smoothly, thanks to a great cooperation between local authorities,
pilots and the excellent manoeuvrable tugs of KOTUG SMIT TOWAGE.
After succeeding this pilot project, the 2nd jetty of the Fluxys LNG
Terminal can now open up the loading and unloading of LNG ships at quay 616 for
the LNG market. KOTUG SMIT TOWAGE is looking forward to assist a lot of LNG
carriers to the Fluxys LNG Terminal.
