Newbuilding Named at Odense Steel Shipyard

Wednesday, May 23, 2007
Odense Steel Shipyard presented its latest newbuilding, an 11,000 TEU container vessel, for the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group. Gunilla Nyman, accompanied by her husband, Anders Dahlvig, CEO & President, IKEA Group, honored A.P. Moller - Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding Ebba Maersk. Like her four predecessors, Ebba 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 Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine which develops 110,000 BHP, Ebba 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.

Ebba Maersk will be registered in Copenhagen and will be commanded by Captain Sverri Asmund Kjærbæk with Peter Planch Jørgensen as Chief Engineer.
