Maersk ship through Northeast Passage

Maersk ship through Northeast Passage

21-08-2018 12:00:00


As part of an experiment, Maesk Line is sending one of their container ships from Asia to Europe using through the Northeast Passage. The event will take place in the beginning of September and the ship is expected to arrive in St. Peterborough in the end of September.

”The event will make it possible for us to get new experiences and collect data through the Northeast Passage”, Maersk Line writes in a mail to Maritime Danmark.

”We do not currently consider the Northeast passage as a commercial alternative to our current routes, which reflects the needs of our customers, trade patterns and population centers”, Maersk Line writes.

It will be Seago Lines newly build Venta Maersk that will embark on the sailing trip, which will make it the first time that the ship sails in the open. The ship is currently anchored outside of Vladivostok.

Seago Line is a feeder shipping company under Maersk Line.

Venta Maersk’s sister ship Vistula Maersk was crowned ”Danish Ship of the Year 2018” at the Danish Maritime Fair. Read more about Vistula Maersk (and Venta Maersk) in an article in the Magazinet Maritime Danmark beneath this article.

Maersk Line has received permission for the sail from the Russian authorities.

"The right route will be decided in consultation with the Russian authorities after a thorough examination of ice conditions. There will be assistance from icebreakers where necessary," Maersk writes
