Shell said that Europe's first inland-waterway LNG bunker vessel has carried out its first bunkering operations, providing fuel for the Containerships Polar and Containerships Nord vessels in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The LNG London (which is owned by LNG Shipping - a cooperation between Victrol and Sogestran) is on long-term charter to Shell. It will 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."

LNG London will be loaded with LNG at the Gate terminal in Rotterdam. An innovative transfer system enables delivery of LNG 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.
