The pontoon, called the the FlexFueler 002, will be built by Dutch shipyard Kooiman Marine Group and commissioned by mid-2020 and support the shipping industry in its switch to cleaner LNG operations. Titan LNG will be the long-term operator of the pontoon. FlexFueler 002 is the second Titan LNG developed pontoon of its sort and identical to FlexFueler 001, which will come into service in Amsterdam in approximately three months time.
