more engine power. This design takes economy of scale to a new level.

Maersk Line continues to break its own records and sets new standards for the 

shipping industry. The capacity of a Triple-E vessel, 18,000 TEU sets a new
world record surpassing the capacity of Emma Mærsk by 16%.
From Regina Mærsk to the Triple-E class, Maersk has designed the largest
container vessels in the world since 1996.

Fun fact 

If all Triple-E class vessel containers were placed one after the other, they would reach about 110 km. You could almost walk across the entire United Kingdom on top of these containers.
