Shipping company Nor Lines has allocated its two LNG-powered multipurpose vessels to a biweekly liner service from the SCA terminal in Rotterdam to the Norwegian coast.
The ships in question are MV Kvitnos and the MV Kvitbjørn, both built in 2015 in China.
MV Kvitnos MV Kvitbjørn have a capacity of 1,500 Lane RoRo meters, 122 TEU containers, 1,500 tons of refrigerated hold and a heavy load crane with 80 tons lift capacity.
The 9,132-ton ships are bunkered, like the Wes Amelie, with Titan LNG at the City Terminal in the Prins Willem Alexander harbor. The LNG is delivered to the vessels by trucks.
The Port of Rotterdam and Titan LNG have set up the site temporarily to bunker LNG to sea-going vessels until there are sufficient LNG bunker barges available.
Nor lines is a fully owned subsidiary of the shipping company Samskip. The fourteen-day shipping service runs through fourteen Norwegian ports such as Trondheim, Tromsø and Bergen.
