VIDEO: CMA CGM Puts Biggest French-Flagged Boxship into Service

The 18,000 TEU CMA CGM Bouganville has become the largest container ship sailing under the flag of France after starting its rotation in CMA CGM’s Asia French line Thursday, September 3.

The 400-meter-long, 54-meter wide boxship is the fourth vessel in the company’s 18,000 TEU series, and was named after the French explorer Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, who led, as Captain, the first French official world tour in the 18th Century.

The CMA CGM Bouganville is averaging 37g of CO2/km for each container, energy efficiency almost three times higher than recorded by CMA CGM’s fleet 10 years ago.

The boxship was delivered by the Korean shipyard Samsung on August 25 and begun its first rotation by calling at Asian ports.

She will call at Shanghai on September 5, Port Kelang on September 13, Suez on September 15, and Algeciras on October 1, to finally arrive at Le Havre on October 5.
