Maersk Londrina

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Maersk Londrina is a 8700 TEU containership built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., LTD (DSME) for A.P. Moller - Maersk A/S. According the shipbuilder, one of the biggest challenges during construction was to increase the height of the accommodation by 9m in order to achieve the carrying capacity of 8,700 TEU from 7,450 TEU for the previous vessels. In spite of the difficulties of this kind of big modification during construction, the conversion was successfully completed and satisfactory to the shipowner. As with most newbuilds, the vessel has the particular features of green ship design such as Waste Heat Recovery System, Ballast Water Treatment System focusing on environmental friendly and high efficiency products.
It is also equipped with Waste Heat Recovery System(WHRS) composed of steam turbine, power turbine and the relevant auxiliary machineries. This fuel saving device generates electric power by using exhaust gas energy from M/E without additional fuel supply. It will reduce CO2 emission by 8~10% compared to conventional type of container ships.
Finally, various energy saving systems such as load dependent operation of cooling sea water pumps, fans and etc. have been applied to the vessel in order to maximize energy efficiency.
