Maersk Line launches new ship

Maersk Line launches new ship

Odense Steel Shipyard on December 15 presented its latest newbuilding, an 11,000-TEU container vessel for A.P. Moller-Maersk Group.
Lady Bond accompanied by her husband Sir John Bond, chairman of Vodafone Group Plc, honored A.P. Moller-Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding "Eugen Maersk."
Like her seven predecessors, "Eugen Maersk" will be part of the series of the world's largest container vessels, and she will like her sister vessels set new standards for safety and environment. Environmentally friendly silicone paint covers the hull of the vessel below the waterline - reducing water resistance and cutting the vessel's fuel consumption by 1,200 tons per year.
With her 14-cylinder Wartsila RT-flex diesel engine which develops 110,000 BHP, "Eugen Maersk" will after delivery enter Maersk Line's worldwide service and therby together with the other vessels contribute to a global, competitive and flexible transport for the company's customers.
"Eugen Maersk" will be registered in Randers and will be commanded by Soren Filip Hoppe with Steen Viig as chief engineer.
