Maersk Newbuilding Named at Odense Steel

Monday, August 27, 2007
On August 25, 2007 Odense Steel Shipyard presented its latest newbuilding, an 11,000 TEU container vessel, for the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group. Leise Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller honored A.P. Moller - Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding Elly Maersk.

Like her five predecessors, Elly 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 its 14-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine which develops 110,000 bhp, Elly Maersk will enter Maersk Line’s worldwide service after delivery. Elly Maersk will be registered in Svendborg and will be commanded by Captain Poul Buchholz Hansen with Jan Niemann Kristensen as Chief Engineer.
