On Saturday 12 July 2008 Odense Steel Shipyard presented its latest newbuilding, a 7,000 TEU container ship, for the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group.
Mrs Lolita Tsai-Lange, married to Mr Reinhard Lange, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, Sea & Air Logistics, Kuehne + Nagel International AG, honoured A.P. Moller – Maersk and the Yard by naming the newbuilding MAREN MAERSK.
MAREN MAERSK is the third ship in a series of six container ships. The ship is designed and built to meet the highest demands for safe, precise, environmentally friendly and economic transportation of goods all over the globe. Among other things, a waste heat recovery system is installed to optimise the use of the energy produced.
MAREN MAERSK is a highly automated ship thoroughly monitored by advanced computer systems to ensure an optimal and efficient operation.
To minimize the fuel consumption and thereby CO2 emissions the 12-cylinder Wartsila RT-flex diesel engine has been optimised for a more efficient and economical service speed. The propulsion machinery on MAREN MAERSK develops 84,000 BHP.
MAREN MAERSK will after delivery enter Maersk Line's worldwide liner service.
MAREN MAERSK is registered in Ringkobing and will be commanded by Captain Andras Samson Gregersen with Johnny Hovmann Jensen as Chief Engineer.
