CSSC Jiangnan Shipyard, a unit of China State Shipbuilding Corporation, has delivered the fourth 23,000 teu dual-fuel containership to the French owner CMA CGM.

The vessel, CMA CGM Trocadero, is 399.9 meters in length, 61.3 meters in width, and is currently the world's largest duel-fuel container ship.

The vessel is the eighth of nine vessels CMA CGM Group ordered at two CSSC’s yards, CSSC Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding and CSSC Jiangnan Shipyard, and the last one to be constructed by Jiangnan Shipyard.

CMA CGM Trocadero will leave China on 29 May, heading to Northern Europe, and will then be deployed on CMA CGM’s Asia-Europe service.

CMA CGM has been at the forefront of the shipping industry's adoption of LNG as a fuel to reduce GHG emissions. The company reported a 4% overall reduction in its CO2 emissions in 2020. The container line said it had reduced emissions per teu/km travelled by 49% over 2008 levels, with a target of reducing emissions by 50% by 2030. The line also plans to offer a biomethane-fuelled shipping service.

LNG has increased in popularity as a fuel choice, taking a growing share of the newbuild orderbook.
