Hudong-Zhonghua delivers LNG-fueled CMA CGM Bahia

Chinese shipbuilder Hudong-Zhonghua has handed over the 13,000-teu LNG-powered containership, CMA CGM Bahia.

The naming and delivery ceremony for the LNG-powered vessel took place on December 7, according to the Chinese shipbuilder.

This is the first of six 13,000-teu LNG-powered containerships Hudong-Zhonghua built for French shipping giant CMA CGM.

It is 336 meters long, 51 meters wide, and has a designed speed of 21 knots and a maximum capacity of 13,200 TEUs.

Moreover, the new LNG-powered vessel features GTT’s Mark III containment system and the world’s first CMD-WinGD 9X92DF-2.0 iCER main engine, Hudong-Zhonghua said.

The vessel’s LNG tanks have a capacity of 14,000 cbm.

Hudong-Zhonghua said CMA CGM Bahia will also become the largest dual-fuel containership operating on the South American route.

The shipbuilder and Jiangnan Shipyard are each building six LNG-powered ships for CMA CGM as part of a deal revealed in April 2021, but the six vessels at Jiangnan have a capacity of 15,000 units.
