From October this year, the French container transport company will start to deploy six 15000 TEU LNG powered new buildings in the trade between China and the west coast of the United States. All six buildings will be put into operation by the end of 2022.
Rodolphe Saade, chairman and CEO of CMA CGM, announced the move at tpm21, saying: "by the end of this year, we will be a pioneer in deploying LNG ships from China to Los Angeles / long beach."
CMA CGM is the first company to operate LNG powered super large container ships. CMA CGM has nine new natural gas powered ships of 23000 TEUs, five of which are currently operating in Eurasian trade.
Although LNG is still a fossil fuel and can only reduce carbon dioxide emissions, Saade believes that it is the best choice at present, and as a shipping company, they need to take action now.
"We can talk about projects that we can deliver in 10-15 years, but it's important what we're doing now," he said. At CMA CGM, we decided to be proactive and that's why we decided to use LNG to drive the ship. "
Israel's line Zim plans to deploy 10 15000 TEU LNG powered vessels in the Asia US East Coast Trade from 2023.
