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. Blessed by father Francis Fang, the vessel was then officially named by her Godmother, Tanya Saadé Zeenny, who wished the ship, the captain and its crew the best of luck on their future voyages with the traditional words “May God bless this ship and all who will sail on her”.

These nine vessels are packed with innovations, the result of a long cooperation between CMA CGM’s research and development experts and industrial partners. In addition to LNG motorization, the vessels offer advanced technologies - the cockpit boasts the latest embedded digital technologies to assist the commander and crew, in particular for port manoeuvres; they feature a redesigned straight bow with an integrated bulb, a redesigned rudder, and a redesigned propeller all of which substantially improve the vessels hydrodynamics, thereby reducing energy consumption. These 9 vessels bear a specific “LNG Powered” label that will be recognizable on all seas across the globe.

From its design all the way to its operation, without forgetting its construction, The CMA CGM JACQUES SAADE benefited from the know-how and expertise of the best French, European, and global industry leaders. A number of specialized companies played their parts in this landmark construction project, including BIO-UV Group, a French specialist in ultraviolet-based water disinfection systems who provided the BIO-SEA system, a ballast water treatment technology,

CSSC, Shanghai’s shipyards who developed a globally recognized know-how and expertise in container ship construction,

Cryostar, a French expert in high technology cryogenic equipment who provided the LNG pumps,

Bureau Veritas, a French classification company in charge of guaranteeing the certification of the CMA CGM JAQUES SAADE and its sister ships,

BLM, a French company who provided winches and windlass,

GTT, a French technology and engineering company expert in membrane containment systems, selected for the design of LNG tanks and related technical services.

Schneider Electric, a French industrial group who designed the vessel’s electrical switchboards,

Sperry Marine, company based in the United Kingdom and responsible for radio navigation and platform equipment,

Total and Rotterdam port who provided LNG refueling services,

Wartsila, a Finnish gas provider who handled system and auxiliary systems,

WinGD, the CMA CGM JACQUES SAADE’s primary engine designer

The CMA CGM JACQUES SAADE will start its maiden voyage as of September 23rd on the French Asia Line, CMA CGM Group’s most emblematic line between Asia and Northern Europe. Its rotation will lead it to the ports of Pusan in South Korea; Tianjin, Ningbo, Shanghai and Yantian, China; Singapore; Southampton, Dunkirk, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Algeciras in Europe; and Port Kelang in Malaysia. This line provides a weekly service comprising 13 calls over the course of 84 days.

Today, LNG is the most advanced solution when it comes to preserving air quality. It enables a 99% reduction in sulfur dioxide and fine particle emissions, and an 85% reduction in nitrogen dioxide emissions, going well above and beyond existing regulation. LNG emits up to 20% less CO2 compared to fuel motorization. This technology is one of the first step towards achieving CMA CGM Group’s ambitious 2050 objective of carbon neutrality.
