Low bunker consumption engine to power 3 CMA CGM 20,600-TEUers

THE first of three 20,600-TEU vessels owned by the world's No 3 container shipping company, CMA CGM, will be powered by a Wartsila X92, a low-speed, two-stroke engine to drive fuel efficiencies.

Delivered by WinGD, this joint venture between Wartsila and China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), which took over its partner's engine business in January.

The three containerships are being built by Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction's (HHIC) Subic Bay shipyard in the Philippines, reported Vancouver's Ship & Bunker.

The engine has been designed to "provide exceptional reliability, the lowest operating costs and minimal exhaust emissions, all of which are essential in today's operating environment," said WinGD chief executive Martin Wernli.

"As container vessels are getting ever bigger to achieve economies of scale, it is essential that the engines and propulsion equipment are developed to achieve efficiencies needed," he said.
