Shell to supply LNG for ultra large container vessels


A subsidiary of energy giant Shell will supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) for twelve ultra large dual-fuel container vessels of 23,500+ twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU).

Owned and operated by shipping like Hapag-Lloyd, the vessels will receive the LNG during the second half of 2023 in the Port of Rotterdam.

By using LNG, Hapag-Lloyd aims to reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) intensity of its vessels and fully decarbonise its fleet in line with its goal of becoming Net Zero carbon by 2045.

According to a study on the use of LNG as marine fuel by Sphera, the use of LNG may reduce the CO2 intensity of container vessels by up to 23% compared to conventional fuels.
