CMA CGM Takes Delivery of 20,600 TEU Flagship

The CMA CGM Group has announced the arrival of its new flagship and world’s biggest containership flying the French flag with a capacity of 20,600 TEUs: CMA CGM ANTOINE DE SAINT EXUPERY.

The technological-advanced ship benefits from the best technologies: a Becker Twisted Fin allowing to improve the propeller’s performance, helping to reduce significantly the energy expenditure for a 4% reduction in CO2 emissions; a new-generation engine that significantly reduces oil consumption (-25%) and fuel consumption for a 3% average reduction of  CO2 emissions; a system for the treatment of ballast water by filters and UV lamps, allowing to reject to the sea a cleared water, without living organism capable of impacting marine biodiversity.In a statement, CMA CGM says that by naming its flagship CMA CGM ANTOINE OF SAINT EXUPERY, the Group pays tribute to the pioneer of the Aéropostale, the writer and the poet, known for his values of humanism and responsibility, values that the group says they have been sharing and conveying for 40 years. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, whose work is known worldwide, is also one of France’s strongest symbols. Thanks to its presence in more than 160 countries, the CMA CGM Group contributes daily to France’s influence worldwide, promoting its expertise and dynamism.

Entry into service on the most emblematic sea route CMA CGM ANTOINE DE SAINT EXUPERY will enter into service on February 6th on the FAL 1 service (French Asia Line 1), the longest sea route in the world which connects Asia to Northern Europe. This line offers a weekly service to 16 ports of call for a duration of 84 days.
