Finnish shipping company Containerships has carried out first bunkering of LNG during cargo operations.

Containerships said in a statement that it completed simultaneous operations (Simops) bunkering on its LNG-powered Containerships Nord vessel in the Port of Rotterdam.

According to the company, the vessel became the first container carrier performing Simops in Europe by means of ship-to-ship bunkering.

The ship-to-ship bunkering operations were completed in cooperation with Shell, Containership’s bunker supplier, the Port of Rotterdam, and with the RST Terminal. During bunkering, the vessel received around 200 tons of LNG.

This unprecedented achievement paves the way for this procedure to be performed on other LNG-powered vessels, including the recently delivered Containerships Polar, the sister ship of the Containerships Nord,” the containership stated.

Simops operations reduce the ship’s stay in the port and avoids operational delays. That way transit times can be reduced, offering CMA CGM Group customers a fast connection between Northern Europe and the Baltics.
