Shipping group CMA CGM has taken delivery of the newbuild box ship CMA CGM Vasco de Gama on July 27. Built by China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), the 18,000 TEUs vessel is, with its 399 meters length and 54 meters width, the largest ship in the CMA CGM fleet and the largest containership ever built in a Chinese shipyard. The CMA CGM Vasco de Gama is equipped with an engine of the latest generation, a twisted leading edge rudder with bulb and an optimized hull design, together decreasing the ship’s CO2 emissions by 10 percent compared to the previous vessel generation, CMA CGM said. With an estimated emission of 37g of CO2/km for each container, the CMA CGM Vasco de Gama is touted for its environmental signature. The CMA CGM Vasco de Gama is the first 18,000 TEUs containership ever built by a Chinese shipyard. The CMA CGM Zheng He and CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin, two other vessels of the 18,000 TEUs series from the CSSC shipyards, will be delivered on September and November.   (As published in the August 2015 edition of Maritime Reporter & Engineering News - http://magazines.marinelink.com/Magazines/MaritimeReporter)
