European short Sea Ro-Ro specialist CLdN Ro-Ro has welcomed the MV Hermine into its fleet after the LNG-ready vessel completed the maiden voyage in Zeebrugge earlier this month. 

It is the sixth vessel added since the newbuild strategy was unveiled in 2016 that will see the company expand its fleet by 12 new vessels, CLdN said in its statement.

Additionally, the company has confirmed a further two orders for the same class of vessel, with the pair having MAN main engines powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The vessels, which will be built at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, will have a 320 cubic meter capacity C type LNG fuel storage tank located on the main deck.

The LNG supply chain is currently being set up in Rotterdam and Zeebrugge where the ships will bunker by barge or truck on a regular basis, CLdN said.

The company’s spokesperson noted that the improving infrastructure and supply chain for liquefied natural gas fuel has made it possible for the company to execute its plans to order LNG-fueled vessels in addition to the recent newbuilds all being LNG-ready.
