French liner major CMA CGM has reportedly ordered the construction of 22 containerships worth around $2.3bn, marking the deal the largest single containership order in China’s shipbuilding history.

The orders are spread across three Chinese shipbuilders,  Jiangnan Shipyard, Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding, and Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry, all subsidiaries of China State Shipbuilding Corporation, Xinde Marine reported.

The contract covers the construction of 6 dual-fuel 15,000 TEU containerships, set to be built by Jiangnan Shipyard, followed by 6 dual-fuelled 13,000 TEU boxships to be built by Hudong Zhonghua, and ten 5,500 scrubber-fitted containerships to be built by Beihai Shipbuilding.
