Containerships in Milestone LNG Bunkering Op

Containerships, a subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group, has performed its first simultaneous operations (SIMOPS) bunkering.

The operations allows for the concomitant bunkering of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and execution of loading and unloading procedures.

The SIMOPS bunkering was undertaken on the company’s LNG-powered Containerships Nord vessel in the Port of Rotterdam on July 4, 2019. The vessel thus became the first container carrier performing SIMOPS in Europe by means of “ship-to-ship” bunkering, according to CMA CGM.

To ensure a safe ship-to-ship bunkering, Containerships worked closely together with Shell, its bunker supplier, with the Port of Rotterdam and with the RST Terminal.

The boxship received approximately 200 tons of LNG.

The SIMOPS helps reduce the ship’s stay in the port and avoid operational delays, therefore, reducing transit times.
