"World’s Largest LNG Bunkering Vessel Arrives in Rotterdam" (so that's how CMA CGM will fuel the new megaships)

From gCaptain, August 24:
The world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel arrived at Europe’s Port of Rotterdam.

The Gas Agility is owned by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL). It was built at the shipyard of Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding near Shanghai and is operated by the French company Total.

With a tank capacity of 18,600 cubic meters and length of 135.5, the ship easily ranks as the world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel, overtaking Nauticor’s 7,500 cbm Kairos which is operated in Hamburg, Germany....
