CMA CGM Louis Bleriot, the third and final 20,600 TEU class containership ordered in 2015 from Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction – Philippines (HHIC-Phil Inc.), has been delivered to its owner CMA CGM.

The ship was named after Louis Charles Joseph Blériot, a French aviator, inventor and engineer. Its two predecessors, CMA CGM Jean Mermoz and CMA CGM Antoine de Saint Exupery, were delivered in January and May this year, joining the prestigious 20,000 TEU class club.

The ships from the series are around 400 meter long and 59 meter wide, which means that each of them is longer than four football fields and bigger than The Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower.

CMA CGM is building ever larger ships featuring 22,000 TEU. The nine LNG-powered boxships, being built by Shanghai Waigaoqiao and Hudong Zhonghua will start delivery next year continuing well into 2020.
