The new flagship, the world’s biggest vessel sailing under the French flag, is the first in a series of three of the company’s 20,600 TEU container ships.

The 400 m long and 59 m wide ship entered into service on the French Asia Line 1 (FAL 1) on February 6th.

Antoine de Saint Exupery is equipped with a Becker Twisted Fin allowing to improve the propeller’s performance by reducing CO2 emission by 4%, a new-generation engine that reduces oil consumption by one-quarter and CO2 by a further 3%, as well as with a ballast water treatment system.
