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.

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

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