Marseille - CMA CGM’s owned company Containerships has introduced its second LNG-powered ship Containerships Polar to optimize its Baltic service. The CMA CGM Group says it will operate 20 LNG-powered vessels by 2022.
With its dimensions and its high ice class, the Containerships Polar is suited for the navigational and climatic challenges of its operational area in Northern Europe and the Baltics. Moreover, the ship provides best-in-class container intake: with an exceptional high intake of 40ft and 45ft pallet-wide high cube containers, Containerships is underlining its customer-oriented approach. At the end of June, the vessel’s first LNG bunkering will be carried out in Rotterdam where it will fuel an approximate of 200mt of liquefied natural gas via ship-to-ship bunkering.
