Malta first in Europe to welcome largest container ship powered by LNG
This represents a highly symbolic call for the CMA CGM Group’s flagship, just a few days after she set a new world record for the number of full containers loaded on a single journey.
The CMA CGM jacques saade, the largest containership in the world with a capacity of 23,000 TEUs and powered by LNG, has arrived in Malta, her first port of call in Europe.
The CMA CGM Group’s flagship, which set a new world record when she left Singapore with a load of 20,723 full containers aboard, crossed the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal to reach the Mediterranean, and will shortly continue her journey to Northern Europe. ■
