The world's first Shortsea Container Vessel with LNG is operated by Unifeeder
Unifeeder offers multimodal shipment by the world’s first LNG container vessel.
Environmentally friendly solutions are asked for whenever we discuss annual contracts with our customers. Even though the technical solutions are not yet optimal, it is important that we search for all options in the market to support our customers, conclude Shortsea Director Niels Kjaer-Richardt.
The vessel is primarily used on one of Unifeeder's routings between Rotterdam, The Baltics and Poland.
c/v “Wes Amelie” is the first vessel of its kind worldwide that has been converted to an LNG propulsion system. When using LNG, the pollutant emissions is drastically reduced (sulfur oxide (Sox) approx. >99%, nitrogen oxide (NOx) approx. 90% and CO2 up to 20%).
