Jiangnan floats out LNG-fueled CMA CGM Cape Cod

Chinese shipbuilder Jiangnan has launched the 15,000-teu LNG-powered containership, CMA CGM Cape Cod.

The shipbuilder held the launching ceremony for the 336 meters long and 51 meters wide vessel on October 31, it said in a statement.

This is the second of six 15,000-teu LNG-powered containerships Jiangnan is building for French shipping giant CMA CGM.

Jiangnan and Hudong-Zhonghua are each constucting six LNG-powered ships for CMA CGM as part of a deal revealed in April 2021, but the six vessels at Hudong-Zhonghua have a capacity of 13,000 units.

Also, the new LNG-powered vessels feature GTT’s Mark III containment system and WinGD’s dual-fuel propulsion.

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