CMA CGM unit first box ship to load LNG


French shipping giant CMA CGM's subsidiary ContainerShips has performed the first LNG bunkering in Europe while loading and unloading in Rotterdam, reported Fort Lauderdale's Maritime Executive.
The operation was conducted on the 1,380-TEU Containerships Nord, when it took on 200 tons of LNG from Shell to become the first box ship in Europe to do so using ship-to-ship bunkering.
Containerships expects this to be repeated on its sister ship Containerships Polar as it will reduce time in port, says the company, reducing and transit times and speeding delivery between the Northern Range and Baltic ports.
Two more sister ships are expected to be delivered this year from the Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard: Containerships Arctic and Containerships Aurora.
A pioneer in the use of LNG to power containerships, CMA CGM is set to take delivery of 20 LNG-powered vessels by 2022, including nine 22,000-TEU ships, which are to be delivered from 2020.
