Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding

As informed, the takeover ceremony for the new vessel took place on June 28, 2024, at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard.

The ship is the fifth out of six new 13,000 TEU dual-fuel boxships Hudong-Zhonghua is building for the French shipping giant.

CMA CGM Belem is 336 meters long, 51 meters wide, and 26.8 meters deep, with a designed service speed of 21 knots and a maximum cargo capacity of 13,200 TEUs.

The ship comes equipped with an LNG dual-fuel power system and has a 14,000 cbm Mark III LNG cargo containment system.

Furthermore, the unit features the CMD-WinGD9X9DF-2.0 main engine, which was developed by China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation.

A next-generation intelligent control by exhaust recycling (iCER) system installed onboard the vessel is expected to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 28% and methane slip by 50%, according to the Chinese shipbuilder.

Additionally, the containership comes with a huge wind deflector at the bow, which could save 2% to 4% of fuel consumption during actual operation.

Furthermore, an energy-saving deflector is installed at the stern, which can improve the propeller propulsion efficiency, reduce energy consumption by about 1.5%, and reduce carbon dioxide gas emissions.

To remind, CMA CGM welcomed the fourth ship CMA CGM Sao Paulo in May this year.
