CMA CGM Calcutta

Another new to Halifax ship showed up on the CMA CGM loop today. No record setter, it is still a relatively big ship with a capacity in excess of the magic 10,000 TEU mark.

CMA CGM Calcutta dates from 2018 when it was delivered by Jiangsu New Yangzi Shipbuilding Co in Jingjiang, China. Measuring 112,967 gt, 119,262 dwt it has a rated capacity of 10,100 TEU. Interestingly for a ship of its size it has a single superstructure, unlike the isolated bridge of the larger ships.

It also seemed to have a lot of empty slots on deck - possibly a sign of things to come in the near term with a reduction in world trade.
