Hudong-Zhonghua launches LNG-fueled CMA CGM Buzios

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

The shipbuilder said in a statement it held the launching ceremony for the vessel on July 18.

This is the second 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 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 vessels feature GTT’s Mark III containment system and WinGD’s dual-fuel propulsion, such as the nine LNG-powered ULCVs already built at the two yards.

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