CMA CGM’s fifth LNG-powered giant wraps up gas trials

CMA CGM’s fifth out of nine ultra-large LNG-powered containerships is nearing delivery after it completed gas trails off the east coast of Shanghai in the East China Sea.

China State Shipbuilding Corporation’s Hudong-Zhonghua says the 23,000 TEU CMA CGM Rivoli returned to its Shanghai Jiangnan-Changxing Shipyard on December 25 after wrapping up trials.

Furthermore, the state-owned yard will deliver the vessel to the French shipping group in January.

Hudong is building five while CSSC’s Jiangnan Shipyard is constructing four ULCVs in this batch of nine world’s largest LNG-powered vessels.

This is the third vessel for Hudong as it already delivered the flagship Jacques Saade and Palais Royal while Jiangan handed over the Champs Elysees and the CMA CGM Louvre.

All of the ships will be 400 meters long and 61 meters wide and CMA CGM will deploy them on the Europe-Asia route.

Additionally, the ships feature WinGD’s dual-fuel engines and GTT’s 18,600-cbm fuel tank, both largest ever built.
