The vessel will bunker with 200 tonnes of LNG at Rotterdam and will be deployed on the carrier's Baltic service after a period covering for CMA CGM on its Baltic feeder service network, reported UK's The Loadstar.
The vessel joins its three sister ships, Containerships Aurora, Containerships Nord and Containerships Polar.
Other carriers have yet to follow CMA CGM's LNG-fuelled strategy, citing ongoing concerns over the infrastructure to support its bunkering.
Even for so-called LNG-ready ships, converting the vessels to run on the gas is a very expensive and time-consuming operation, as Hapag-Lloyd has found to its cost.
The German carrier inherited 17 LNG-ready mega ships from its merger with UASC but it has only decided to have one of these ships converted to LNG on 'a trial basis,' which is understood to have cost US$30 million.
Subsequently Mr Habben Jansen confirmed that there were no plans to retrofit any other UASC vessels.
Elsewhere, MSC, which plans to have about half of its fleet fitted with scrubbers in order to comply with IMO 2020, said LNG was 'not a viable option.'
At the Hansa Forum in Hamburg last month, MSC's executive vice president Bud Darr said the carrier would not be investing in LNG for any of its box ships owing to the limited amount of LNG bunkering facilities available at ports worldwide.
