Finnish shipping company Containerships, part of French CMA CGM group, said it has taken delivery of its first liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered container vessel, Containerships Nord.

The LNG-powered vessel was delivered to Containerships at Wenchong Shipyard in China on December 12.

Containerships Nord is expected to start sailing towards Europe soon where the vessel will serve regularly European ports and trade.

Her sister vessels, three more in total, are scheduled for delivery during the first half of 2019. All vessels hold a capacity of 1,400 TEU.

After the delivery of Containerships’ first three LNG-powered vessels, the company will offer its customers a service based on LNG in large extent, it said.

Until then, Containerships’ parent company, CMA CGM – also very committed to LNG-technology – has sublet Containerships Nord for its trade lanes.

Containerships’ LNG-concept spreads out from sea to land; target is to create a complete, LNG based door-to-door supply chain in Europe, the company said.

In addition to LNG-powered vessels, Containerships is looking for constant growth of LNG-fuelled transport capacity on land logistics by investing in LNG-fuelled trucks.
