Conventional bunkering in Port of Antwerp-Bruges
It is estimated that ships bunker more than 6 million tonnes of conventional fuels annually in Port of Antwerp-Bruges. Conventional fuels are, for example, low-sulphur oil or gas oil. You can refuel these anywhere in the port through an authorised bunker dealer.
Toward an efficient and transparant bunker market
In order to tackle existing quantity issues in the bunker market, Port of Antwerp-Bruges and Port of Rotterdam will introduce the mandatory use of a bunker measering system. Such a system measures the exact amount of fuel delivered to sea-going vessels and makes the bunker market more transparant, efficient and reliable.
LNG bunkering in Port of Antwerp-Bruges
You can easily and safely bunker LNG (liquefied natural gas) in Antwerp and Zeebrugge, both by truck and by bunker ship. LNG significantly reduces harmful particulate matter, SOx and NOx emissions and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. LNG is the perfect fuel as a stepping stone to a low-carbon future.
LNG bunkering is not permitted everywhere. The map shows the permitted LNG bunkering activities in the Antwerp port area.
You can request authorisation for LNG bunkering operations at firstname.lastname@example.org using form HKD 38 A (truck-to-ship) or HKD 38 B (ship-to-ship).
LNG bunkering is not permitted everywhere. In the port regulation you can consult which LNG bunkering activities are authorised in the Zeebrugge port area.

Hydrogen, methanol or electricity bunkering
Port of Antwerp-Bruges is working hard to offer a comprehensive range of low carbon fuels including LNG, methanol, hydrogen and electric power.
Hydrogen can be bunkered in Antwerp on a small scale at the CMB fuel station in the Kattendijk dock in the city port.
