HHLA TK Estonia welcomes CMA CGM's newest LNG vessel

The CMA CGM Mermaid recently docked at the Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) terminal in Tallinn, Estonia.

The new generation ship, completed in early 2024, uses liquefied natural gas (LNG)and has a 20 per cent lower CO2 footprint due to its revolutionary design.

Riia Sillave, the Chairman of the Board of HHLA TK Estonia, said: “We went to welcome the captains of the CMA CGM Mermaid on board during the ship’s first voyage, and we were introduced to the ship’s interior as well as its streamlined shape.

“Reducing emissions is the focus of both shipowners, ports and terminal operators, and more environmentally friendly technologies are constantly being sought. Launching CMA CGM Mermaid in the Baltic Sea is undoubtedly a trend-setting step in the industry.”
