Recently, shipping giants such as Maersk, MSC and CMA CGM have begun to modify their ships to reduce carbon emissions and increase maximum loading capacity.

Recently, Maersk officially announced that it will modify its first fleet to enable it to use methanol fuel.

Currently, Maersk is cooperating with multiple parties to carry out main engine modifications for some of its ships. To adapt to the demand for low-speed navigation in the future, and to modify the lashing bridges of some ships so that they can load more containers.

Previously, Maersk and Wärtsilä have joined forces to implement an innovative engine downgrading solution.

This will transform a batch of Maersk's main engines that were assembled into large container ships that were adapted to high-speed navigation in the past into smaller engines that can adapt to today's and future slow-speed navigation environments.

In addition to modifying the host to meet the increasingly stringent carbon emission regulations of IMO. Maersk is also retrofitting the lashing bridges on some of its ships to carry more containers.

It is reported that the ship's renovation project lasted 75 days. The ship completed the installation of a hybrid desulfurization system, replacement of the lashing bridge, replacement of the bulbous bow, and heightening of the living area at the shipyard.

In addition, the ship has also undergone upgrades in terms of cargo capacity. Through the transformation, the maximum packing capacity of the "MSC Hamburg" wheel has been increased from the original 16,552TEU to 18,500TEU.

CMA CGM has also renovated its ships.

Recently, shipping consulting company Alphaliner mentioned in its latest weekly report that one of CMA CGM’s container ships installed wind deflectors. The ship is named CMA CGM MARCO POLO。
