Shanghai International Port (SIPG) and the French shipping major CMA CGM have signed an agreement on LNG bunkering service at Shanghai port, CMA CGM said in a statement.
According to the deal, a new 20,000 m3 LNG bunker barge deployed by SIPG will provide CMA CGM's 15,000 TEU dual-fuel vessels with LNG supply for 10 years. CMA CGM will be deploying the dual-fuel vessels on its Pearl River Express line, which sails from China to the Port of Los Angeles, and all ships will be fully operational by the end of 2022.
The service will be the first operation of its kind in Shanghai port, and even in China, the French company said.
