CLdN Links Leixōes with Göteborg Via Zeebrugge

By | 2020 Newsletter week 26 | No Comments

Only one week after the launch of their new triangle service between Santander, Liverpool and Dublin, CLdN Ro-Ro has added Zeebrugge as a port of call to their bi-weekly Leixōes-Rotterdam service.

This move strengthens CLdN’s network to and from the Iberian Peninsula even further.

CLdN has organised for two of their weekly services from Leixōes to Rotterdam, to have an extra call in Zeebrugge. From the port of Zeebrugge they will, as from now, offer their clients additional through – shipment services to Esbjerg and Göteborg. “As a result, we now have a reliable, cost-efficient and environmentally friendly shortsea connection from the very south to the most northern parts of Europe,” says a CLdN spokesman.

To maximise capacity and minimise their carbon footprint as much as possible, the shipping company has chosen to deploy the latest generation of H5 class vessels (carrying up to 450 freight units + 200 new cars per shipment) to the route.

Rendering Of The Week

STENA ELEKTRA is intended to operate on the route between Göteborg and Fredrikshavn, solely powered by electricity. “As of today, the concept is not yet profitable,” says Henrik Nordhammar at Stena Teknik, “but with the rapid increase of capacity and descending prices of batteries, it’s only a matter of time.”

The vessel is still in a concept stage, and there are several challenges to overcome before it can be realised, like how to recharge the batteries with 50 MWh of electricity during the 90 minutes in port.
