Finnish shipping company Containerships, that is soon to become part of French CMA CGM group, is continuing the progress on its liquefied natural gas (LNG) strategy,
The company noted that a start has been made on building the four LNG vessels of which two will be delivered to the company during September-December 2018 and two will be delivered during January-March 2019.
The delivery window has been prolonged from August-January to September 2018-March 2019 for the four vessels.
Containerships also increased the number of LNG-fuelled trucks in Great Britain and is exploring the possibilities to increase the number of LNG-fuelled trucks also in the Netherlands and Finland.
In June, Container Finance agreed to sell Containerships and Container Finance’s holdings in Multi-Link Terminals and CD Holding, that will become part of CMA CGM Group.
Upon closing, Container Finance’s entire container logistics operations will integrate CMA CGM intra-regional market offering in Europe and Mediterranean area.
