Maersk giant to Denmark for the first time
It will be Aarhus Harbor, which will make a way for Maersk Line's "Munich Maersk", which belongs to the company's new and expanded Triple-E generation when the ship arrives in Denmark for the first time.
Maersk Line has provisionally put two of the company's total of 11 ordered 2nd generation Triple-E ships from the Daewoo yard in South Korea into operation.
The first in the series, Madrid Maersk, sat on the throne as the world's largest container ship with a capacity of 20,568 TEU approximately one month from delivery in April until it was surpassed by OOCL Hong Kong, which has a capacity of 21,413 TEU.
But the difference is hard to spot as the outer dimensions of the ships are almost the same.
Madrid Maersk has never been to a Danish port, but Munich Maersk will be on Thursday because the ship sails on Maersk Asia-Europe route AE5.
According to Søfart, Maersk Line has just taken delivery of the third ship in the series called Moscow Maersk.
