RoRo, break bulk, and auto cargo ocean transport services company Siem Car Carriers on Tuesday (19 January) said the Siem Aristotle, the second of two sister liquified natural gas (LNG) car carriers, is on her maiden voyage from Emden, Germany to North America.
Siem Aristotle received her first LNG bunkers, taking on over 800 metric tonnes of eco-friendly LNG marine fuel. Nearly 4,800 cars for Volkswagen Group were loaded, bound for Canada, USA, and Mexico.
The vessel is 200 meters long, 38 meters wide with a maximum draft of 10 meters and her sailing speed of up to 19 nautical miles per hour. The vessel recently made port calls in Halifax, NS, Baltimore MD and Vera Cruz, MX.
Operating exclusively for Volkswagen Group, the Siem Aristotle is the second installment in the company’s fleet that is revolutionising how long-distance shipping is conducted.
Fueled by LNG, Siem Aristotle reduces carbon dioxide emissions by up to 25%, nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 30%, particulate matter by up to 60% and sulphur oxide emissions by up to 100%.
The vessel will be managed by SCC’s sister company – Siem Ship Management based in Gdynia, Poland. While in Emden, the experienced management and crew took all precautions necessary to ensure safe bunkering of LNG for the vessel (as seen in the images below).
