Nautical safety

Nautical safety is one of the main reasons for locating the terminal in Rotterdam. The Port of Rotterdam is deep and wide and has an excellent ship management system. At the proposed location, the LNG carriers will cause little if any disruption to other vessels. LNG trade is usually based on long-term contracts with regular deliveries by a limited number of vessels. This adds to the safety of the operations. Every LNG carrier visiting the terminal for the first time is checked in detail and instructed on the procedures to be followed.
