CMA CGM AMERIGO VESPUCCI

CMA CGM Amerigo VespucciToday's Ship of the Day is the CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci (IMO: 9454395, Port of Registry: Marseille, France). The Amerigo Vespucci is one of the largest vessels in CMA CGM's fleet with a maximum teu capacity of 13,344. The vessel is 365 meters long and 51 meters wide. She was built in 2009 by Daewoo Heavy Industries, Korea. The vessel's design is comparable to the recently built MSC vessels (such as: MSC Beatrice) with the superstructure located midships. One can argue about the looks of this vessel, however the design ensures for better stability and lower trim for higher speed, when the ship is fully loaded. In compliance with CMA CGM’s environmental policy and like all new vessels of this type ordered by the Group, the CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci is equipped with a combination of innovative environmental features, including:

- An electronically controlled engine, reducing oil and fuel consumption thus enabling the vessel to be operated at eco-speed,
- Double-hull protected bunker tanks, in compliance with the MARPOL 12A regulation which will come into effect in August 2010
- The Fast Oil Recovery System, which enables bunkers to be rapidly recovered at any time, hence significantly limiting the environmental consequences should there be an incident at sea.

The Amerigo Vespucci will have seven sisterships, amongst which are the CMA CGM Christoph Colomb and CMA CGM Corte Real which have also been recently delivered. She is deployed in CMA CGM's FAL5 loop connecting China and North-Western Europe.

The CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci is scheduled to arrive later tonight at the APM Terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Le Havre. She will visit the port of Rotterdam again next week on her second call to Rotterdam in the loop.
