The world’s first 100% LNG-powered barge

In a world-first, Shell launched a tank barge powered solely by LNG in March 2013. The LNG-powered barge, Greenstream, was built and designed at Peters Shipyards in the Netherlands and includes a number of innovative safety and efficiency features.

For example, Greenstream has four smaller, gas-burning engines rather than one large engine as in traditional barges. This means that power can be varied and so gives the potential for fuel savings. In addition, these smaller engines operate at a lower frequency than traditional barges, reducing vibration and noise levels. This new LNG-powered barge will operate in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland.
