On October 4, Odense Steel Shipyard named its latest newbuilding, a 7,000 TEU container ship, for the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group.
Yumiko Arakawa, wife of Shoshi Arakawa, Chairman of the Board, CEO and President, Bridgestone Corporation, honored A.P. Moller – Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding Mette Maersk.
Mette Maersk is the fourth ship in a series of six container ships. The ship is designed and built to meet the highest demands for safe, precise, environmentally friendly and economic transportation of goods all over the globe. Among other things, a waste heat recovery system is installed to optimize the use of the energy produced.
Mette Maersk is an automated ship monitored by computer systems to ensure an optimal and efficient operation.
To minimize the fuel consumption and thereby CO2 emissions the 12-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex diesel engine has been optimised for a more efficient and economical service speed. The propulsion machinery on Mette Maersk develops 84,000 bhp.
Mette Maersk will after delivery enter Maersk Line's worldwide liner service.
Mette Maersk is registered in Rønne and will be commanded by Captain David A. Gudmundsson with Harald Aastrup as Chief Engineer.
