On October 31st, 2015 the first ever cargo ship to run only on liquefied natural gas (LNG) hit open water for the first time. This was a huge advancement in the boating world and the launch of the ship was attended by a small crowd of photographers, as well as an aerial video camera to capture the moment the ship went from land to sea.
The ship was built and docked in the Netherlands and was known around the shipyard Nb. 423, until it was handed over to its new owners JT Cement in the weeks leading up to Christmas. From that moment on, it was known as The M.V. Greenland, or The Greenland, for short.
