Elbe Starts Maiden Voyage

Elbe Starts Her Maiden Voyage1

A 9400 TEUs container ship CMA CGM Elbe set out on her maiden voyage from Dalian, China, on October 14, 2014.

The Elbe is the second in a series of 28 newbuilding vessels ranging in capacity from 9,400 TEUs to 10,900 TEUs, which will be delivered from now to the third quarter of 2016.

Back in June the CMA CGM Group received the delivery of the first vessel of this series: the CMA CGM Danube.

Sailing under the Malta flag and chartered bareboat to CIMC, it is the second chartered ship of this class built at the Chinese construction site DSIC (Dalian PRC).

With 300m in length and 48m in width, it was designed to offer maximal loading capacity while meeting the technical constraints imposed by the Bosphorous Strait.

Reefer containers maintain a temperature, a hygrometry and an atmosphere adapted to each product, offering container transportation flexibility and cold chain maintenance from the production to the delivery place.
Operating on the Bosphorus Express, the Elbe will offer direct service between Asia, Turkey and the Black Sea. Accordingly, it will call Dalian, Tianjin, Kwangyang, Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Chiwan, Yantian, Tanjung Pelepas, Izmit, Istambul Ambarli, Constanza, Odessa, Ilyichevsk, Port Said, Port Kelang, Singapore, and once again Dalian.
