CMA CGM Takes Delivery of the Figaro

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

CMA CGM announced the delivery of the CMA CGM Figaro, 8500 teu containership built by Samsung Heavy Industry.  The CMA CGM Figaro is registered in France and will sail under the French flag (RIF).
In compliance with CMA CGM’s environmental policy, and like all new vessels of this type ordered by the Group, the CMA CGM Figaro is equipped with a combination of innovative environmental features, including : 
•    the pioneering Fast Oil Recovery System, which enables bunkers to be rapidly recovered at any time, hence significantly limiting the environmental consequences should there be an incident at sea;
•    an electronically controlled engine, reducing oil and fuel consumption by respectively 25% and 3%. Thanks to this new engine, the vessel can – if necessary – be operated at super eco-speed (14 to 15 knots);
•    a multi-chamber waste compactor to recycle garbage on board;
•    pre-equipment to connect to a port’s electricity supply during operations.

Operated on the Asia to the Middle East Gulf trade, while volumes and freight rates are recovering, this new vessel is a strategic asset for CMA CGM and proves the Group’s ability to move forward in the current economic context. The CMA CGM Figaro left the Samsung shipyard to sail to Tianjin, for phasing on CIMEX service on the following rotation : Tianjin, Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Shekou, Port Kelang, Khor Fakkan, Jebel Ali, Bandar Abbas, Port Kelang, Nansha, Tianjin.
