The CMA CGM JACQUES SAADE joins the fleet: the first 23,000 TEU container vessel in the world to be powered by liquefied natural gas

Dear customers,

This week saw a landmark day for the CMA CGM Group and all our customers: The CMA CGM JACQUES SAADE has joined CMA CGM Group’s fleet thus becoming the largest LNG-powered container ship in the world.

A global leader in shipping and logistics, CMA CGM has made the symbolic choice of naming its new flagship after its founder, Jacques Saadé, a visionary and entrepreneur.

This pioneering technology preserves air quality and accelerates maritime transport’s energy transition.

It is the first of a series of nine 23 000 TEU container ships, a homogeneous LNG-powered fleet.

The CMA CGM JACQUES SAADE joins the French Asia Line, CMA CGM Group’s most emblematic line between Asia and Northern Europe.
