Containerships’ first newbuild LNG-powered container vessel, M/S Containerships Nord, has been delivered to the company at Wenchong Shipyard, Guangzhou, China. The vessel is due to sail to Europe soon after the delivery.
Containerships continues to execute its environmentally-friendly LNG-strategy, and has three more LNG-powered container vessels scheduled for delivery during 1H19. The LNG-powered vessels will connect Containerships’ main ports in the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
Containerships’ parent company, CMA CGM, is also committed to environmentally-friendly LNG technology and has sublet the first LNG-powered vessel for its trade lanes. When the first three LNG-powered vessels have been delivered, the vessels will create LNG based service for Containerships in the North Sea and Baltic Sea.
