100th LNG refueling at the Port of Montreal

August 26, 2020

The Port of Montreal has celebrated the 100th bunkering of a ship with liquefied natural gas (LNG) at its docks. The Gaïa Desgagnés, the most recent addition to the Desgagnés fleet of LNG-powered vessels, was bunkered with LNG on August 25th.

Installed in 2017 in collaboration with Énergir, this safe and flexible LNG bunkering system has been available to all shipowners whose fleets transit the Port of Montreal. These 100 refueling operations avoided the emission of 28,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases over three years.
