Bureau Veritas to class LNG fuelled ultra-large container ships

Bureau Veritas has been awarded the responsibility for classification of CMA CGM’s new 22,000 TEU containerships.

The decision for the nine ships to be fuelled by liquefied natural gas has been carefully considered and Bureau Veritas has been closely involved in feasibility studies, working with the owner, builders and technology providers.

The new ships will have a bunker capacity close to 18,000cbm and this represents a significantly higher volume than has been required in the LNG fuelled ship market.

Bureau Veritas has investigated the feasibility of the design together with shipbuilding group China State Shipbuilding Corporation and GTT, the containment system designer.
