CMA CGM receives Sub-Panamax newbuild
French container shipping major CMA CGM has taken delivery of CMA CGM Sinnamary, a Sub-Panamax newbuild vessel.
The 2,300 TEU ship was built at Jiangsu New Yangzijiang shipyard in China.
The Cyprus-flagged containership has left Shanghai and will soon operate on the company’s NEFGUI service that connects French Guyana and Brazil to Northern Europe, CMA CGM said on its social media platforms.
CMA CGM Sinnamary was ordered by Credit Agricole back in 2017 as part of a three-vessel order. Its sister ships, CMA CGM Kourou and Douce France were completed by Jiangsu Yangzijiang earlier this year, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
CMA CGM Kourou and CMA CGM Sinnamary are commercially controlled by CMA CGM, while Douce France is controlled by Marfret. Credit Agricole is the beneficial owner of all three ships.
CMA CGM Sinnamary is similar to CMA CGM’s Guyanamax series of containerships built by South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo Dockyard which are also positioned on the NEFGUI line.
