New LNG vessels for CMA CGM will move container line closer to carbon neutrality.

CMA CGM has announced plans to deploy six new LNG-powered ships on its Pacific routes. The first of the new vessels will be delivered in October this year and all the ships will be fully operational by the end of 2022. The 15,000 TEU vessels will enter service on CMA CGM’s Pearl River Service which sails from China to the Port of Los Angeles.

Rodolphe Saadé, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “The deployment of six LNG-powered containerships of 15,000-TEU will go along with the development of the US economy in a sustainable manner. It is a strong signal in favour of the environment. The United States is strategic for the economic exchanges and for CMA CGM: 2021 will definitely be marked by the strengthening of the ties that have already united us for a long time. We deeply believe in the strengths of the American economy and we’re eager to foster its responsible growth.”

CMA CGM has made a strong commitment to LNG as its near-term fuel solution and the group is currently operating 12 LNG-powered containerships. They plan to grow their LGN fleet to 32 containerships of various sizes by 2022.
