Yesterday, on 2nd July, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) delivered the first Triple-E vessel, the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller to Maersk Line.

Management from DSME and Maersk sign the official documents for ownership of the vessel. The Danish and the Korean flags are hoisted along with the Maersk pennanton the wheel house.

At the moment, the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller is docked at DSME, from where it will depart for bunkering. It is scheduled to commence its maiden voyage in Busan, South Korea, on 15th July.

This event represents a significant milestone and pride for the owner and the builder.

The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller is the largest ship in the world, and along with the other 19 Triple-E vessels on order from DSME, 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.
