The newest containership giant, being built for French shipping major CMA CGM, has been launched at a shipyard in the Philippines.

The 20,600 TEU containership CMA CGM Louis Bleriot was launched by the Subic-based shipbuilder Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction – Philippines (HHIC-Phil) on April 21.

Measuring roughly 400 meters in length, the unit is the third ultra large container vessel (ULCV) to be built by HHIC-Phil for CMA CGM.

Following the launching, the containership underwent rigid technical inspections and sea trials.

CMA CGM Louis Bleriot is scheduled for delivery in September 2018.

On May 25, the shipbuilder held the naming and delivery ceremony for CMA CGM’s second 20,600 TEU containership, CMA CGM Jean Mermoz. The newbuild will be deployed in French Asia Line 1 which connects Asia to Northern Europe.

The first ship from the batch of three giants ordered from the Subic shipbuilder, CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupery, was delivered to its owner earlier this year.
