To celebrate the world’s first container vessel sailing on green methanol, A.P. Moller - Maersk will host a week of festivities, including the name giving event and other activities September 18 – 21 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The 2,100 TEU feeder vessel is a small piece of history in the shipping industry.
The dual-fuel engine vessel will pause in Copenhagen right outside the Maersk headquarters on its way to the Baltic Sea, where she will be operating going forward. The feeder vessel will bring real experience for Maersk seafarers in operating the new type of fuel, as the company prepares to receive a fleet of new, large ocean-going dual-fuel engine powered ships from 2024.
The 172-meter-long vessel will leave the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in Korea this summer to embark on her maiden voyage to Copenhagen. The vessel will have a container capacity of 2,100 TEU and she sails at a designed speed of 17,4 knots.
During her week in Copenhagen, the vessel will formally receive her name during a ceremony at Toldboden, next to the A.P. Moller – Maersk headquarter. A.P. Moller – Maersk will host events for employees, partners, investors, students and the area will be open for the public to take a closer look at the new vessel from the dock and learn more about the efforts to decarbonise the shipping industry.
More info will follow as we approach the event.
