MSC Gemma: Innovative technology and sustainability

MSC Gemma possesses a number of innovative features that reduce her environmental impact and improve her operational efficiency, such as a small bulbous bow, large diameter propellers and energy saving ducting.

Also, its air lubrication system creates a layer of bubbles between the hull and the surrounding water, significantly reducing friction and hydrodynamic resistance, technology that experts say will provide energy savings of between three and four percent. , and a substantial decrease in CO emissions2 .

This is the third ship of the same size to be built at the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding yard on behalf of MSC. The container shipping company has received five ships since the beginning of this year: MSC Tessa and MSC Celestino Maresca, with 24,116 TEUs, and MSC Raya, MSC Irina and MSC Loreto, with 24,000 TEUs.
