Maiden call CMA CGM Jacques Saade

Wednesday evening 11 November the CMA-CGM Jacques Saade will arrive at RWG for its maiden call in the Port of Rotterdam. The vessel, named after the founder of the CMA CGM Group, is a LNG-powered vessel of the very large container ships (VLCS) generation. A milestone in the transition towards LNG, a more carbon-neutral fuel for the shipping industry. RWG is the first deep sea terminal to be 'LNG ready' in the Netherlands. The CMA-CGM Jacques Saade is a 23,000 TEU vessel, in a series of nine, owned by CMA-CGM. The vessel is 400 meters long and 61 meters wide and is currently deployed in the NEU4 service of Ocean Alliance.
