Neo-panamax Containership, 14,414-TEU, built in 2017 at Hyundai HI (Ulsan)

VESSEL IDENTIFICATION & DESCRIPTION: Launch Name was CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt. Call Sign MAZS3, IMO Number 9780873. Built at Hyundai HI (Ulsan), United Kingdom Flagged, BV Classed, Length Overall of 365.95 m., Length Between Perpendiculars of 350.00 m., Draught of 16.00 m., Moulded Depth of 29.85 m. Beam of 48.20 m., Gross Tonnage of 140,872, Tonnage of 64,226 International Net and 146,639 Dwt (long). WinGD Engine, Heavy Fuel Oil, Horsepower of 68,195 HP.

SHIPOWNERS & MANAGERS: CMA-CGM SA, Marseille, France.

VESSEL SPECIALIZED DETAILS: Teu Capacities of 14,414 Total, 9,230 Homogeneous and 2,800 Reefer, Ship is able to transit the newly expanded locks of the Panama Canal (Neo-panamax @ 14,000-teu).

MAIN ENGINE: 1 x Diesel – WinGD 10X92 – 2-stroke 10-cyl. 920mm x3468mm bore/stroke 50,190mkW total at 78rpm.

PROPULSION & POSITIONING: 1 x FP Propeller (Aft Centre) (mechanical) (Bronze), HHI – Hyundai EMD, 78rpm. 2 x Pos, Tunnel Thruster (Fwd.) (electric) at 5,000ekW total.

The neo-panamax containership MV ‘CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt’ is making her maiden voyage to the East Coast of the United States. At 14,414 teu capacity, the vessel belongs to the new asset class of containerships with maximum capacity to cross the expanded locks of the Panama Canal. The call of the containership MV ‘CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt’ to New York and Port Elizabeth in New Jersey is historic, as she is the largest vessel to pass under the raised Bayonne Bridge and the largest containership to call ever call New York and New Jersey. In June 2017, the 10,000-teu containership MV ‘ZIM Antwerp’ was among the first post-panamax vessels ever having to utilize the bridge’s new airdraft and raised roadway.  In mid-July 2017, the 13,2000-teu containership MV ‘OOCL Berlin’ was the first neo-panamax, and largest boxship until that time, to pass under the Bayonne Bridge. The Bayonne Bridge after almost five years of works, a budgeted cost of $1.3 billion for the project, had her roadway raised by 64 feet in order to allow new-panamax containerships to pass below; new airdraft 219.8 ft, 76.0 m. The Bayonne Bridge connects New Jersey and Staten Island (New York) over the Kill Van Kull Strait.

Here the images are from the containership MV ‘CMA CGM T Roosevelt’ passing under the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge (connecting Staten Island and Brooklyn) and photographed against the Lower Manhattan skyline, the World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty. For those not familiar with the New York region, the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge is the first bridge a ship to encounter when entering the harbor, and effectively almost all vessels calling the port have to pass under. Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge’s airdraft of 230.0  ft (70.1 m) is high enough to be a concern only to large cruiseships calling New York.
