Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), and China Shipbuilding Industry Trading have delivered liquified natural gas (LNG) dual-fuel large containership CMA CGM Paraty to French shipping major CMA CGM.

As informed, the delivery ceremony was held together with the naming ceremony on April 9, 2024. The vessel, which was designed by China Shipbuilding Group’s 708th Research Institute, has a total length of 336 meters, a molded width of 51 meters, and a molded depth of 26.8 meters. 

The containership has a designed service speed of 21 knots and a maximum load capacity of 13,200 TEUs. It incorporates an LNG dual-fuel power system and is equipped with a 14,000 cubic meter LNG cargo tank with Mark III-type cargo containment system.

According to the shipbuilder, the intelligent control by exhaust recycling (iCER) system installed onboard the ship could reduce methane slip in gas mode by 50% and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by more than 28%. The ship is specially equipped with a huge bow windshield, which could save 2%-4% of fuel consumption during actual operation.
