On April 30, China Shipbuilding Trading joined hands with Jiangnan Shipyard, Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding, and Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry, a subsidiary of Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry Group, to jointly undertake 22 orders for 3 types of container ships
of CMA CGM.
The order came into effect immediately, once again setting a new record of the largest single container ship order undertaken by CSSC
. So far, CSSC has completed the annual target task ahead of schedule.
A total of 22 vessels of 3 types, including 6 dual-fuel powered 15000TEU container ships
, will be built by Jiangnan Shipyard
, with a total length of 366 meters and a width of 51 meters. 6 dual-fuel powered 13000TEU container ships
, which are 336 meters long and 51 meters wide, will be built by Hudong-Zhonghua
. Ten conventional powered 5500TEU container ships
, with a total length of 255 meters and a width of 40 meters, will be built by BSIC
The three ship types were independently researched and designed by CSSC. Among them, 15000TEU and 13000TEU container ships are designed by MARIC
. They will use GTT Mark III
liquid cargo containment system and WinGD dual-fuel main engine
. The 5500TEU container ship is designed by SDARI
, with space reserved for installation of the scrubber. It also adopts the new generation WinGD main engine.
Since the first quarter of this year, influenced by the global COVID-19 and the sharp increase in the demand for global trade cargo volume, the container ship market has recovered rapidly and continued to become a hot spot in the shipping market, with a number of large container ship orders being placed around the world.
The world's major liner companies are actively upgrading their fleets, choosing the latest generation of green, energy-saving and environment-friendly ships, and ordering new ships in batches.
This time, CMA CGM has put all 22 new ships into the shipyard of CSSC, which is a high recognition of the brand and service quality of container ships of China State Shipbuilding Corporation.
