Containerships, a unit of the CMA CGM Group, has taken delivery of its fourth LNG-powered container vessel Containerships Arctic.

The company said that it took delivery of the vessel on December 10, 2019. This follows the introduction of its three sister ships – the Containerships Nord, Containerships Polar, and the Containerships Aurora.

After the vessels sets sail from Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard, the vessel’s first LNG bunkering will be carried out in Rotterdam. There, it will fuel an approximate of 200 metric tons of LNG via ship-to-ship bunkering.

The ship will then be phased into CMA CGM’s Baltic feeder services, before joining Containerships’ BALT-1 short-sea line in early 2021.

It is worth noting that CMA CGM decided that none of its vessels would use the Northern Sea Route in order to preserve the fragile and unique ecosystems of the Arctic.
