Asian shipyards are launching a new generation of environmentally friendlier containerships, with Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea recently delivering the LNG dual-fuel CMA CGM Mermaid, a 2,000 TEU vessel. This ship, the first among 10 sisterships, represents a partnership between CMA CGM, Chantiers de l’Atlantique, and HHI, boasting up to 20% lower CO2 emissions. Designed for operation in the Mediterranean and northern Europe, these vessels feature an innovative design to enhance hydrodynamic and aerodynamic performance, including front superstructures for improved aerodynamics and loading capacity, and a distinctive straight bow with an integrated bulb. The final ship in this series will also incorporate a 1 MW hydrogen fuel cell for zero emissions at berth, marking a significant step towards greener maritime operations.
