CMA CGM to Power Future 22,000 TEU Vessels with LNG

CMA CGM has announced that they will become the first shipping company in the world to power future giant containerships with liquefied natural gas (LNG), pursuing their commitment to the protection of the environment and to ocean conservation.

With this order by the CMA CGM Group, the Chinese shipyards group CSSC positions itself as a reference in the building of the most environment-friendly giant containerships. CMA CGM says this is a technological breakthrough for the environment, as LNG allows for, compared to current ships using heavy fuel oil up to 25% less CO2, 99% less sulphur emissions, 99% less fine particles, and 85% less nitrogen oxides emissions. Moreover, the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), which measures a ship’s environmental footprint, is improved by 20% compared to ships only propelled by fuel oil.

Rodolphe Saadé, CMA CGM Group CEO, stated: “We have made the bold decision to equip our future 22,000 TEUs vessels with a technology firmly focused on the protection of the environment. By choosing LNG, CMA CGM confirms its ambition to be a leading force in the industry in environmental protection by being a pioneer in innovative and eco-responsible technologies.”
