The Port of Amsterdam has doubled the maximum port dues discount for vessels that hold an Environmental Ship Index (ESI) certificate and use LNG for their main or auxiliary engine.

Over the past few years, the Dutch port has been offering an environmental discount on port charges to ships with an ESI score of 20 points or more.

And, in an effort to encourage more use of the alternative fuel, Amsterdam is now offering an additional discount to LNG users from August 1.

"Port of Amsterdam regards LNG as a vital transitional fuel which currently serves as the best alternative for the shipping industry," the port authority said.

"The introduction of this discount will help to advance our mission of encouraging the 50,000 seagoing vessels, cruise ships and barges that call on the Port annually to operate as rapidly and efficiently as possible, using the least amount of resources," it added.

As previously reported, Titan LNG's - and Europe's - first LNG bunkering pontoon, the FlexFueler, is due to become operational by the end of this year.

Titan has already signed a long-term rental agreement with Amsterdam Port Authority for the Dutch port to be the FlexFueler's home location.

Nearby port Rotterdam introduced its own incentive for ships that bunker LNG back in 2015.
