LNG-fueled CMA CGM Paraty wraps up trials in China

The 13,000-teu LNG-powered containership, CMA CGM Paraty, has completed its sea and gas trials in China, according to Hudong-Zhonghua.

Following completion of the “two-in-one” trial, the vessel returned to Hudong-Zhonghua’s Changxing shipbuilding base on March 14, the CSSC-controlled shipbuilder said in a statement.

Hudong-Zhonghua said the vessel broke a new record as it took only eight days to complete the trials, and the cycle was shortened by four days compared with that of the second vessel in the same series.

The shipbuilder did not provide the delivery date for CMA CGM Paraty.

It delivered last month the second of six vessels in this series, CMA CGM Buzios, to French shipping giant CMA CGM.

In December last year, Hudong-Zhonghua delivered the first vessel in this batch, CMA CGM Bahia, and recently launched the fifth vessel, CMA CGM Belem.

Hudong-Zhonghua plans to deliver all of the remaining ships during this year. The six vessels will work on the South American route.

Moreover, the new LNG-powered vessels feature GTT’s Mark III containment system and the CMD-WinGD 9X92DF-2.0 iCER main engine.

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.
