Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, the largest ship in the world, took to the seas last week equipped with SPOS, MeteoGroup’s onboard weather routing and ship performance optimization system.

The Triple-E series vessel sets new standards in the container industry, not just for size, but also of energy efficiency and environmental performance. With unique design features for slower speeds and maximum efficiency, this vessel will emit 50% less CO2 per container moved than the current average on the Asia-Europe route.

More than 3,000 vessels recently upgraded to the latest version of SPOS, MeteoGroup said, adding the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller to the list of those now planning their voyages with the help of the company’s onboard weather routing system.
