Newbuilding Named at Odense Steel Shipyard

Monday, November 27, 2006
Odense Steel Shipyard presented its latest newbuilding, an 11,000 TEU container vessel, for the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group. Bernadette Brabeck-Letmathe, accompanied by her husband, Mr Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, Chairman & CEO, Nestlé SA, honoured A.P. Moller – Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding ELEONORA MÆRSK. Like her predecessors, EMMA MÆRSK and ESTELLE MÆRSK, ELEONORA MÆRSK will be part of the series of the world’s largest container vessels. Ships in this series will 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 tonnes per year. With her 14-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine which develops 110,000 BHP, ELEONORA MÆRSK will after delivery enter Maersk Line’s worldwide service and thereby together with the other vessels contribute to a global, competitive and flexible transport for the Company’s customers. ELEONORA MÆRSK will be registered in Svendborg and will be commanded by Captain Jørn Holger Pedersen with Jens Lykke Sørensen as Chief Engineer
