Europe’s first inland-waterway LNG bunker vessel has performed its first bunkering operations in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, according to the ship’s long-term charterer Shell.

The LNG London, owned by LNG Shipping – a cooperation between Victrol and Sogestran, conduced the operation with the Containerships Polar and Containerships Nord vessels.

The 110-metre-long barge would primarily be used by Shell for LNG bunkering in the ports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp.

“The entry into service of LNG London shows our ability and commitment to providing safe and reliable supplies that help meet the growing need for cleaner-burning fuel,” Tahir Faruqui, General Manager, Shell Global Downstream LNG, said.

“We are pleased to have three LNG bunker vessels in our fleet and look forward to others joining them in the future,” Faruqui added.

Featuring a capacity of 3,000 cubic metres, LNG London would be loaded at the Gate terminal in Rotterdam. The LNG cargo would be delivered 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.
