CMA CGM DANUBE Enters CMA CGM Fleet

CMA CGM Group is pleased to announce that the maiden voyage of the CMA CGM DANUBE began June 30 in China.

This ship of 9400 TEUs is the first of a series of 28 ships from 9,400 TEUs to 10,900 TEUs, ships which will be delivered from now to the third quarter of 2016.

Sailing under the Malta flag and chartered bareboat to CIMC, it is the first ship of this class built at the Chinese construction site DSIC (Dalian PRC) and delivered to the group.

Being 300 meters in length and 48 meters in width, it was designed to offer maximal loading capacity while meeting the technical constraints necessitated by the Strait of the Bosphorus

With a capacity of 1,458 reefer plugs of 40 feet, which is the largest so far on such a ship, the CMA CGM DANUBE embodies the group’s ambition to be a leader in this growing market.

Operated on one of the emblematic lines of the Group, the Bosphorus Express, (BEX), the CMA CGM DANUBE will offer direct service between Asia, Turkey and the Black Sea. Accordingly, it will call Dalian, Tianjin, Kwangyang, Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Chiwan, Yantian, Tanjung Pelepas, Izmit, Istambul Ambarli, Constanza, Odessa, Ilyichevsk, Port Said, Port Kelang, Singapore, and once again Dalian.

In line with the sustainable development policy of the Group, the CMA CGM DANUBE is equipped with all the latest environmental technologies which significantly reduce its CO2 emissions, as well as the group’s carbon footprint. More particularly, it is equipped with new bulbous bow shapes improving the hydrodynamics of the vessel at a speed of 16 to18 knots.

As well 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
• A ballast water treatment system
