Namegiving of Newbuilding L 206 from Odense Steel Shipyard

Monday, March 05, 2007
On Saturday March 3, the Odense Steel Shipyard presented its latest newbuilding, an 11,000 TEU container vessel, for the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group. Berit Jensen, accompanied by her husband, Erling Jensen, Managing Director, Dansk Supermarked A/S, honoured A.P. Moller – Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding Evelyn Maersk. Like her three predecessors, Evelyn 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 tonnes per year. With her 14-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine which develops 110,000 BHP, Evelyn Maersk 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. Evelyn Maersk will be registered in Copenhagen and will be commanded by Captain Niels Beyer Nielsen with Oskar Vestergaard Jensen as Chief Engineer.
