Title: New(?) CMA CGM ships
Post by: Jeff Thoreson on February 19, 2019, 11:45:39 pm
CMA CGM has recently returned it's Panama Direct Service to a weekly call starting with today's call of MOZART in Rotterdam, instead of a fortnightly call as it had been for the winter months. They're introducing several ships to it for which I can find no information. Does anyone have any details on CMA CGM HIBISCUS, CMA CGM WARATAH, CMA CGM MULGA, or CMA CGM TAMARIND? Are these newbuildings or renamings?

These are listed as operated vessels both on the CMA CGM website and the Panama Direct schedule distributed daily to customers, stevedores and agents.

Hi Jeff,
Did a search but much to my disappointment I'm currently not able to help you.
I suppose they will be around 2500 teu as the other ships in that service.
To my knowledge they have no such size ships on order so I suppose they will be chartered in.
Cheers,
Roy

Thanks Roy. I suppose I will have to wait until the first one phases into the service in mid-March.

I was just curious to whether they would be new ships, because I work as a superintendent overseeing loading and unloading of this service in Savannah and was hoping, quite selfishly, for new ships without as many rusty container twistlocks as some of the charter ships they brought in last year.  ;D

At one time they were showing a vessel by the name CMA CGM Kauri, but that has now emerged as the Mozart, which at one time sailed as CMA CGM Pointe des Salines, so maybe they are fake or temporary names.

Could very well be, Tony. Our stevedore firm asked CMA-CGM for information recently so that we could build the vessels in our system in order to plan load/discharge, and their local office wasn't forthcoming with information so I suspect you may be right.

The Hayling Island is one of the vessels on the PAD service. she is the ex CMA CGM Rose.

Appears as these were dummy names as CMA CGM Hibiscus has been replaced with Bomar Calais.

"The Hayling Island is one of the vessels on the PAD service. she is the ex CMA CGM Rose"

Maersk's schedule has the Hayling Island on a new service linking NZ with Tanjung Pelepas.
