Maersk Line's first triple E-ship named


  • Date: 14/06/2013

'Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller' was named today at a ceremony in South Korea. This is the first of Maersk Line's Triple E-ships which is due for delivery in 14 days*. The ship bears the name of the late Maresk Mc-Kinney Moller who passed away in April 2012 at the age of 98.

Maersk have invested $1.9bn** in a series of 18,000 teu vessels which will not only carry considerably more containers but will also reduce C02 emissions by about 50% per container moved.*

Vessel naming is an important tradition for Maersk ever since it took delivery of the first newly-built steamer, Peter Maersk in 1906, their second ship to join the fleet.

Maersk have dedicated a website to these big ships, www.worldslargestship.com which provides interesting facts, coverage of the naming ceremony and video footage of the building of the ships.
