The group received the delivery of the first vessel of this series, CMA CGM DANUBE, in June. Each vessel of this series will be named after a famous river of the world.
CMA CGM Tigris was built by the Chinese New Times Shipbuildings within about 10 months of her keel being laid, and was delivered on-time.

reduce its C02 emissions, as well as the group’s carbon footprint. It is equipped with new bulbous bow shapes improving the hydrodynamics of the vessel at a speed of 16 to 18 knots. The ship also features as an electronically controlled long stroke engine with an exhaust gas bypass system offering the best in fuel consumption, a twisted leading edge rudder with bulb and a ballast water treatment system.
