Shell said that Europe’s first inland-waterway liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker vessel has performed its first bunkering operations, with the Containerships Polar and Containerships Nord vessels, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Shell chartered the LNG London, which is owned by LNG Shipping, a cooperation between Victrol and Sogestran.

It will primarily be used by Shell for LNG bunkering in the ports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp.

LNG London will be loaded with LNG at the Gate terminal in Rotterdam, Shell said in its statement.

A transfer system enables the delivery of LNG to seagoing vessels, inland barges and terminals onshore, while a restricted air draft allows the barge to sail via inland waterways to Antwerp and Amsterdam, if required.
