Total welcomes its first chartered and world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel at Rotterdam

25 Aug 2020

Total Marine Fuel Global Solutions (TFMGS) on Monday (24 August) welcomed its first chartered liquified natural gas (LNG) bunker vessel in Port of Rotterdam ahead of her naming ceremony next month and the start of a new chapter as she moves into active service.

“This marks the culmination of 3 years of dedicated work to plan, build and deliver a major development in global marine LNG fuel supply. Congratulations to all the teams involved!,” said Jérôme Leprince-Ringuet, Managing Director at TMFGS.

The Port of Rotterdam said the vessel has arrived in Rotterdam’s anchorage, but has not yet notified the Harbour Master of an upcoming call.

The ship was built at the shipyard of Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding. Its owner Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) said the 135.5-metre-long ship ranks as ‘the world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel’.

It added that the vessel will be supplying LNG to sea-going vessels, including CMA CGM’s nine new 23,000-TEU Ultra Large Container Vessels (ULCVs) in Northern Europe.
