Jiangnan launches CMA CGM’s LNG-powered duo

Chinese shipbuilder Jiangnan has launched two LNG-powered containerships it is building for French shipping giant CMA CGM.

The vessels are CMA CGM Maui and CMA CGM Big Sur, the fourth and fifth 15,000-teu LNG-powered containership out of a total of six vessel in this series, the shipbuilder said in a statement on Tuesday.

Earlier this year, Jiangnan delivered the first vessel in this batch, CMA CGM Cedrus.

Jiangnan and Hudong-Zhonghua are each constructing 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.

Jiangnan previously said it expects to deliver all of the six vessels by September 2024.
