Finland’s Containerships pushing on with LNG strategy
Finnish shipping company Containerships, that is soon to become part of French CMA CGM group, is continuing the progress on its liquefied natural gas (LNG) strategy,
The company noted that a start has been made on building the four LNG vessels of which two will be delivered to the company during September-December 2018 and two will be delivered during January-March 2019.
The delivery window has been prolonged from August-January to September 2018-March 2019 for the four vessels.
