Maersk takes delivery of Majestic Maersk

Maersk Line has taken delivery of the second container ship in the series of twenty Triple-E container ships which the company has contracted with DSME shipyard in South Korea. Majestic Maersk is right now on its way from Busan to Gwangyang with its first cargo load.

More and more companies choose to contract the so-called ULCSs; container ships with a capacity of more than 10,000 TEU, in an attempt to reduce unit costs. According to new figures from Alpha Liner, 34 new container ships with a capacity of more than 13,000 TEU will enter the market this year.

Majestic Maersk will be the first, and perhaps only, of the new Triple-E ships calling at Copenhagen, where it at the end of September will be on display for the public.

The third container ship in the series, Mary Maersk, has just returned to the yard after a test sailing.

The editors would like to thank Vladimir Toniæ for the picture of Majestic Maersk in the port of Busan, and the picture below of Mary Maersk testing the sea.
