September 28, 2023
The French company CMA CGM has ordered the Chinese shipyard Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. (SWS) the construction of eight dual-fuel container carriers from 9,200 methanol-fueled teu. The company said it was the largest such ship in the world and was also the first time that SWS had entered the market for dual-fuel carriers in methanol. In addition, SWS specified that the ordered vessels represent the new standard of full container capacity following the one set by the 7,000-teu container carriers that SWS delivered for the first time in 2021 and for which it has so far received 34 orders.
The eight new 9,200-teu ships, which will be ranked by Bureau Veritas, will be 299.9 meters long and 45.6 wide.
