LNG-fueled CMA CGM Sao Paolo floated out in China

Chinese shipbuilder Hudong-Zhonghua has launched the 13,000-teu LNG-powered containership, CMA CGM Sao Paolo.

The shipbuilder held the launching ceremony for the 336 meters long and 51 meters wide vessel on November 27.

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

Hudong-Zhonghua floated out the first vessel in this batch, CMA CGM Bahia, in May this year, the second vessel, CMA CGM Buzios, in July, and the third vessel, CMA CGM Paraty, in September.

The vessels will work on the South American route, according to Hudong-Zhonghua.

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.

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.
