Gallery: CMA CGM Kerguelen Christened at Haropa


CMA CGM’s biggest container ship, CMA CGM Kerguelen, was officially christened at Haropa – Port of Le Havre, today, May 12th. The ceremony was attended by Jacques R. Saadé, incorporator and CEO of the CMA CGM Group, Agnès Canayer, Senator and deputy Mayor of Le Havre, and Hervé Martel, Executive Director of the Port of Le Havre.

The 398-meter ship was delivered in March 2015 by the shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries. She is 54 metres wide and capable of carrying 17,554 TEU.

Longer than four football grounds and wider than the ‘Arc de Triomphe’ (45m), the containership will be departing from Le Havre on the FAL1 (French Asia Line), the emblematic service of the company which connects Europe to Asia.
