The CMA CGM JACQUES SAADE, the world's first 23,000 TEU powered by LNG

This is a world first: the largest Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-powered containership in the history of maritime transport was launched in Shanghai on Wednesday, September 25.

It is the flagship of the CMA CGM Group and takes the name of the Group's founder; the CMA CGM JACQUES SAADÉ has a capacity of 23,000 TEUs (Twenty Foot Equivalent) and is fully powered by LNG.

A major technological breakthrough that illustrates CMA CGM's commitment to energy transition.
An innovative choice reflecting our ambition

THE FIRST 23,000 TEU LNG-POWERED VESSEL-Dolphins- Coming soon
In November 2017, Rodolphe Saadé decided to make CMA CGM the first shipowner in the world
to equip its nine future 23,000-TEU vessels with engines powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).

With LNG, the Group has made a ground-breaking choice that goes beyond current and future environmental regulations.

In 2022, the CMA CGM fleet will include 20 LNG-powered vessels, including:

•9 vessels of 23,000 TEUs (delivery from 2020)
•5 vessels of 15,000 TEUs
•6 vessels of 1,400 TEUs, of which 3 have already been delivered to Containerships, the Group’s intra-Europe expert subsidiary
