Maritime technology group Wärtsilä on Thursday (15 October) shared the use of its technologies in the construction of the CMA CGM Jacques Saade, the first 23,000 TEU container vessel in the world to be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The vessel was built at the CSSC Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding yard in China and was delivered to the owner on 22 September 2020. Wärtsilä received orders starting in early 2018 for the equipment supplied.
“The delivery of this vessel marks a further step in the shipping sector’s efforts to decarbonise its operations,” says Denis Hervé, Key Account Manager, Wärtsilä Marine Power.
“The ship is notable not only for its size, but also for its onboard technologies.”
These include Wärtsilä’s fuel gas supply system, Wärtsilä’s Nacos Platinum integrated automation control system, the Propulsion Control system, a Sewage Treatment plant, as well as seals and bearings solutions. Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel engines provide the auxiliary power for the vessel.
The fuel gas supply system is fitted with Wärtsilä’s Operational Performance Improvement and Monitoring (Operim) system, which utilises the latest digital technology to provide data in real-time to allow the system to operate at optimal efficiency at all times and in all weather and sea conditions.
“The Wärtsilä Operim solution, for example, is a central pillar in the company’s Smart Marine Ecosystem approach to delivering greater efficiency, better safety, and improved environmental performance, all of which are essential to the future of shipping,” said Hervé.
