WinGD dual-fuel engines chosen for CMA CGM LNG newbuilds

Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding and Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding.

Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) said that the French shipping line CMA CGM has chosen WinGD dual-fuel low-speed engine to power its nine newbuilds.

The 12-cylinder X92DF engines will power a series of nine LNG-fueled containerships, each with a capacity of 22,000 TEU, making them the largest containerships ever ordered, WinGD said.

The vessels ordered by CMA CGM will be built at the yards of Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding and Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding.

They are due to enter service in 2020 on routes between Asia and Europe and are designed to have the potential to sail complete Asia-to-Europe voyages on liquefied natural gas (LNG).

CMA CGM previously selected its compatriot GTT to design cryogenic tanks for nine LNG-fueled containerships, with 18,000 cubic meter bunker capacity.

Bureau Veritas has been selected to carry out the classification of the vessels.
