Largest LNG bunkering ship arrives in Rotterdam
The 18,600-cbm LNG bunkering new-build Gas Agility has arrived port of Rotterdam as it prepares to launch operations.
The 135-metre-long ship owned by the Japanese Mitsui O.S.K. Lines has a long-term charter deal with the French energy company Total.
The vessel arrived during the weekend and was located close to the port entrance on Monday, but did not enter Rotterdam until this article was published.
After completion, Gas Agility left Hudong's Jiangnan yard near Shagnai in May and arrived at Malta on its way to the Netherlands earlier this month.
The vessel will supply fuel to CMA CGM's ultra-large LNG-powered containers, but also to other vessels in the Northern Europe region.
The vessel is the first of two sister ships with GTT's Mark III Flex membrane containment system and Wartsila's dual-fuel engine.
MOL and Total say that these are the largest LNG bunkering vessels in the world.
To remind you, on August 12, Hudong arranged a keel laying ceremony for the second vessel.
